Money can buy…

Money can buy:
Food, but not an appetite
A bed, but not sleep
Medicine, but not health
Books, but not brains
Acquaintances, but not friends
Finery, but not beauty
Pleasure, but not happiness
A house, but not a home
A church pew, but not heaven
A crucifix, but not a Saviour
Comfort, but not contentment

by Gertrude Heilemann

====

“Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters,
And he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat;
Yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread?
And your labour for that which satisfieth not?

Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good,
And let your soul delight itself in fatness.”

~ Isaiah 55:1-2
