With money you can buy a house but not a home.
With money you can buy a clock but not time.
With money you can buy a bed but not sleep.
With money you can buy a book but not knowledge.
With money you can see a doctor but not good health.
With money you can buy a position but not respect.
With money you can buy blood but not life.
With money you can buy sex but not love.

There are plenty of people who would do well to remember this, Cait. Fat Cats for instance? (not your lovely little kitten of course)

Very telling , Cait.
how does the cat feel about it?

Very profound, Cait, but it sure helps you to be miserable in comfort.

Frances said...

Well done, Cait.

May I add,

with money you can buy food, drink and still not be satisfied or nourished.

Trying not to think too much about money in this current climate!
