Yes, that is the original quotation. But the cliché that people use is that 'money is the root of all evil'

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".

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.

I love easy ones like this added to the mix. They're great for beginners to Jetpunk and they're good for waking up the old brain cells first thing in the morning and getting those fingers moving on the keyboard. Keep sticking them in every once in awhile. Maybe a "star" system could be added near the title to tell people the difficulty. Of course, that would spoil all the fun. Carry on!

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?

Penny wise, pound foolish is the British equivalent (roughly) of "stepping over dollars to pick up dimes"

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!

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.

The cliche attributed to Benjamin Franklin was being used in England in the 1600s as, "A penny saved is a penny got," (Ravenscroft), "A penny saved is a penny gained," (Fuller), and "A penny spar'd is twice got." (Herbert) http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/a-penny-saved-is-a-penny-earned.html
