Worth More Than Money

An individual cannot live after you extract the blood from his veins.  The strongest bank in the United States will last only so long as the people will have sufficient confidence in it to keep their money there.  In fact, the confidence of the people is worth more than money.

-- Carter Godwin Woodson (1875-1950), African American historian, author, and founder of Black History Month, The Mis-Education of the Negro (1933)
