Money can't buy sunsets, songs of wild birds and the music of the wind in the trees — these are as free as the air we breath. Money can't buy inward peace — peace is the result of a constructive philosophy in life. Money can't buy a good character — good character is achieved through decent habits of private living and wholesome dealings in our open contacts with our fellow men.
— Unknown wise person

Money is what you make it.
Depending upon who you are — and your frame of mind — money can be anything you want it to be.
Money can be:
     • the root of all evil;
     • or that which answers all things;
     • or something that burns a hole in your pocket;
     • or a means to freedom;
     • or an interesting concept;
     • or even a stupid concept.

Whatever value you place on money — you must take responsibility for it.
If money is evil to you — you created it being evil.
If money is a problem to you — you created it being a problem.
If money is joy to you — you created this concept.
Take responsibility for your concepts.
And be clear that these are just concepts.
Nothing more and nothing less.
— from Life's Secret Handbook
