Gordon Gekko

  • Someone reminded me I once said "Greed is good". Now it seems it's legal. Because everyone is drinking the same Kool-Aid.
  • Money is a bitch that never sleeps!
  • The mother of all evil is speculation.
  • Bulls make money. Bears make money. Pigs? They get slaughtered.
  • Hey, hey, stay positive, pal. Most people, they lose,they whine and quit. But you got to be there for the turns. Everybody's got good luck, everybody's got bad luck. Don't run when you lose. Don't whine when it hurts. It's like the first grade, Jerry. Nobody likes a crybaby.
  • They took my life - and when I got out - who's waiting for me? Nobody!
  • It's not about the money - it's about the game.
  • Payback. Except I'm not in that business anymore - because the one thing I learned in jail is that money is not the prime asset in life. Time is.
  • Idealism kills every deal.
  • Stop telling lies about me and I'll stop telling the truth about you.
  • I tell you, the government's worse than a wife. They got all the power, they got half the money. Now they're working on getting the other half.

Jacob Moore

  • If it weren't for people who took risks, where would we be in this world?
