Inheritance Quotes


A little of someone else’s money can go a long, long way. While some think of it as a birthright, others consider it a blessing, something that came out of left field in the afterlife. Whether you’re inheriting wealth or that little pet poodle you always despised, inheritance quotes demonstrate the responsibility that comes with an unexpected windfall. Spend it while you can, money’s contraband, but a well executed inheritance can change your stars. Sure, you can listen to those investment counselors. Or perhaps instead you can gain plenty of advice from those who have written legendary inheritance quotes, knowing that some day, someone just like you may receive a very pleasant surprise.
