  • “Money bewitches people. They fret for it and they sweat for it. They devise ingenious ways to get it and most ingenious ways to get rid of it. Money is the only commodity that it is good to be rid of. It will not feed you, clothe you, shelter you or amuse you unless you spend it or invest it. People will do almost anything for money and money will do almost anything for people. Money is a captivating, circulating, masquerading puzzle.”
