The older I get the more I understand.
Money can actually “buy” very little…well, maybe fleeting pleasure, but that new gismo or gazinka pin I thought I had to have, is now in the box headed for Palmer Home.
I broke a antique creamer yesterday that I paid an hours work for. Poof! Gone.
Foolish indeed is the person who considers himself safe and sound because he has money. In the final analysis, money brings no lasting satisfaction, certainly not in the area of things that really matter. There are many things that no amount of money can buy:
- Money can buy medicine, but not health.
- Money can buy a house, but not a home.
- Money can buy companionship, but not friends.
- Money can buy food, but not an appetite.
- Money can buy a bed, but not sleep.
- Money can buy the good life, but not eternal life.
