How I wish I was related to Oprah, after all we share the same last name!:) All kidding aside, I also share her philosophy about money.
Here's some words of wisdom about money from birthday girl Oprah Winfrey...
"If you disrespect money it slips through your fingers".
The takeaway from this quote, according to SavvySugar is:
Learn to respect money. Money deserves respect and your time and concern. Spend time managing it and being aware of it, instead of letting it run through your fingers without thinking about it.
For me, being aware with how I save and spend my money has been an important key in my daily lifestyle, which has resulted in an overall richer life.
