Sylvia Porter

  • One of the soundest rules I try to remember when making forecasts in the field of economics — a profession which is still far more an art than a science — is that whatever is to happen is happening already.

    • Sylvia Porter,
    • in "Sylvia and You," Time ()
  • The average family exists only on paper and its average budget is a fiction, invented by statisticians for the convenience of statisticians.

  • Money never remains just coins and pieces of paper. Money can be translated into the beauty of living, a support in misfortune, an education, or future security. It also can be translated into a source of bitterness.

  • For millions, the retirement dream is in reality an economic nightmare. For millions, growing old today means growing poor, being sick, living in substandard housing, and having to scrimp merely to subsist.

Sylvia Porter, U.S. economist, writer, columnist

(1913 - 1991)

Full name: Sylvia Field Feldman Porter.
