I seem to remember a quote by someone which goes something like...

"beware of anyone who tells you that money doesn't matter, for it is the language of an approaching thief."  or something like that.

I can't seem to find it in google, although I'm sure it's because I'm not remembering it very well.  I would appreciate it if anyone here can point me in the right direction.

Never heard that one, but in the film Quiz Show an investigator says "It's just money, Charlie", and the character of Charlie Van Doren replies: "Whoever said 'money is just money' couldn't have much of it."

"Run for your life from any man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper's bell of an approaching looter."

That's a quote from Francisco d'Anconia in Atlas Shrugged.
