Golden Quotes

“Gold is a treasure, and he who possesses it does all he wishes to in this world, and succeeds in helping souls into paradise.”
– Christopher Columbus

“At a minimum, gold will rise to $3,000. A more likely scenario, however, is that the world’s financial system will break down completely. (The basis of that system is the U.S. dollar.) In that case, gold will rise as high as $10,000 to $40,000 – a point at which all credit – paper will be backed by gold.”
– Steve Puetz

“Bullion doesn’t pay interest or dividends, nor does it grow or expand by itself. That’s the price you pay for tranquillity.”
– Pierre Lassonde

“Gold will be around, gold will be money when the dollar and the euro and the yuan and the ringgitt are mere memories.”
– Richard Russell

“It is the greenback which is unstable, and not bullion.”
– Dr. Franz Pick

“Regardless of the dollar price involved, one ounce of gold would purchase a good-quality man’s suit at the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the presidency of Franklin Roosevelt, and today.”
– Peter A. Burshre

“The possibility of a discriminatory capital-gains tax on gold ‘profits,’ or even of outright confiscation, cannot be wholly dismissed. We must remember that in 1933, when private citizens began to exercise their clear legal right to convert their Federal Reserve notes and gold certificates into gold, President Franklin D. Roosevelt suspended the conversion, ordered the citizens to exchange their gold for paper money, and made it illegal for private citizens to hold or own gold. In other words, the government not only broke its solemn and explicit pledge to convert its notes into gold on demand, but treated the holder (and dupe) who had taken the pledge seriously as the real culprit.”
– Henry Hazlitt

Gold is as steady as a rock, a standard bearer by which all currencies can be accurately measured.”
– Mark Skousen

“Never have the world’s moneys been so long cut off from their metallic roots.”
– Murray M. Rothbard

There can be no other criterion, no other standard than gold. Yes, gold which never changes, which can be shaped into ingots, bars, coins, which has no nationality and which is eternally and universally accepted as the unalterable fiduciary value par excellence.”
– Charles De Gaulle

“Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the ‘hidden’ confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights.”
– Alan Greenspan

If you don’t trust gold, do you trust the logic of taking a beautiful pine tree, worth about $4,000 – $5,000, cutting it up, turning it into pulp and then paper, putting some ink on it and then calling it one billion dollars?”
– Kenneth J. Gerbino

Basically “If Cash is King, then Gold is definitely King”.
