Money Wisdom #58

"Psychoanalytical theory suggests that... money is a symbol of an unconscious infantile desire to attain a union in absolute dependency upon father and mother. At the same time, however, money also symbolises the ambivalence of the child towards its parents. The desire to possess the mother and to destroy the father rival seems to be indicated in the ruthless, compulsive quest for money exhibited by many people."

William H Desmonde Magic. Myth and Money (1962) p.5
