Money Can Buy A Book, But Not Knowledge!



Everyone loves money, lots of it, however




Money can buy food, but not fulfillment,

Money can buy clothes, but not coziness,

Money can buy a car, but not safety,

Money can buy a book, bu not knowledge,

Money can buy a sale deal, but not success,

Money can buy information, but not version,

Money can buy glasses, but not vision,

Money can buy a home, but not happiness,

Money can buy sleep, but not relaxation,

Money can buy a degree, but not education,

Money can buy power, but not peace,

Money can buy a clock, but not time,

Money can buy freedom, but not wisdom,

Money can buy relieve, but not believe,

Money can buy medicine, but not health,

Money can buy acceptance, but not respect,

Money can buy copyrights, but not human rights,

And

Money can buy sex, but not love,

Agree?

Money can buy anything, nut not everything.

Your turn:

Money can buy_____, but not _________.

A wonderfully wise and very resounding poem, Jingle. True - there is more to life than money. Money can buy you a house but not a home.

Wise words, Jingle! So true. I loved Susan's response - sadly, that's very true!

And I'm drawing a total blank and I can't think of one.
