Brief Encounter With Money


"I met money on the way and said," You are just a piece of paper."
Money smiled and said," Of course I am a piece of paper but
I have not seen a dustbin yet in life."
What do you say?

  1. Money is a tool for survival, but will bury you alive if you let it.

  3. The words "necessary evil" come to mind. Money is a method of barter...it is when the money itself becomes the object of desire over the item to be bartered for. This opens up a whole can of worms, doesn't it?

  9. Money is only a means but we have made it an end in today's life. We are obsessed with money these days.

  13. Hi Surjit,

    That's an interesting post!
    Well, if money really say that "I have not seen a dustbin yet in life", it means it is trying to test one to find out who is really the master! :-)

    The test is not how much money you have. The test is who you become when you have it.

    ...'The test is who you become when you have it...'
    Thanks Sam, for adding your valuable views. It is great that in your young age you have understood the meaning of life. God bless.

  15. This is amazing, the dustbin part is one that everyone knows but never acknowledges. I agree with Sam: the question is what becomes of you when you get money.
