“Money isn’t the most important thing. Love is. Fortunately, I love money”

"Money isn’t the most important thing. Love is. Fortunately, I love money” is a joke that has been credited to American stand-up comedian Jackie Mason (1928-2021). His “My Favorite Jokes” column in Parade magazine on May 17, 1964, told the joke, but in a slightly longer form.

17 May 1964, Oakland (CA) Tribune, “My Favorite Jokes” by Jackie Mason, Parade magazine, pg. 12, cols. 2-3:
A psychiatrist was reassuring a patient with the fact that, while money is important, it is not the most important thing in life. “Actually,” he advised, “the most important thing in life is love.”

“In that case,” sighed the patient with relief, “I’m lucky—because I love money!”
