I think it's, "The *love* of money is the root of all evil."
Jan 6, 2013
I have heard it that way too.

Typhon is correct, it comes from 1 Timothy 6:10 (especially KJV)
Jan 7, 2013
Yes, that is the original quotation. But the cliché that people use is that 'money is the root of all evil'
Jan 7, 2013
Actually it's "for the love of money is the root of all KINDS of evil"

I agree with lunatic jordan. the cliche' is correct

I love these clichés! Great quiz 18/22
Jan 6, 2013
Me too. It's one of those phrases that's been misquoted so often that the misquote is now the norm, like "music soothes the savage beast" or "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned".

Good one. 100%.

I don't know, I think this was a particularly easy quiz. Probably the easiest I've seen on Jetpunk. I didn't hesitate for even a second on any answer. This isn't to boast, its just to say, "too easy". These were just fill in the blanks for common everyday sayings, like, What goes up must come _________. Or, "To the victor goes the __________. etc. Good idea, but....

I think the easiest quiz I've seen here is typing the alphabet. And I've never heard "Penny wise, pound foolish". Though I do agree that this was one of the easier ones. Just maybe not the easiest.

Penny wise etc is probably based on the British currency, if you're American you may not have come across it.
Apr 27, 2014
I'm American and I've heard it for as I can remember. I just didn't understand it until I was older.

There are quizzes literally as easy as 1+1 on here. This isn't so bad.
Aug 1, 2013
Well the average score is 17, so you don't seem to be quite on the money here.
Mar 16, 2015
I've never heard of Penny wise and pound foolish. Also I can't believe more people didn't get Time is Money.
Jan 6, 2013
100% with 3:07 left. That might be a bit too much time.
Jan 6, 2013
I'm surprised that nearly half of people didn't know "There's no such thing as a free lunch" when they did so well on most of the others. Or, given the current political climate, were they just skipping the question out of protest?
Jan 6, 2013
I know right?!! I learned that cliche in Micro Economics class!
Jan 6, 2013
Never heard the last one. Must be a British expression.
Jan 7, 2013
agreed. I was thinking penny wise dollar poor. but that didn't work clearly.
Jan 7, 2013
It is. Connected to the "pound"
Jul 30, 2013
Penny wise, pound foolish is the British equivalent (roughly) of "stepping over dollars to pick up dimes"
Mar 20, 2014
Not really. It's for a person who watches the small costs and ignores the big costs. Like using coupons at the supermarket and yet overspending $100 on a new TV!
Apr 27, 2014
Money is not the root of all evil - it's the LOVE of money that is. 1 Timothy 6:10 10 For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
May 10, 2014
The actual cliche', or rather verse, is that the "love of money is the root of all evil"
