In een nieuwsbrief van Philip Humbert vond ik de volgende opmerkelijke en humoristische tekst:
It can buy a Bed, but not Sleep.
It can buy a Clock, but not Time.
It can buy you a Book, but not Knowledge.
It can buy you a Position, but not Respect.
It can buy you Medicine, but not Health.
It can buy you Companions, but not Friends.
It can buy you Sex, but not Love.
It can buy you Excitement, but not Happiness.
So you see, money isn’t everything. And it often causes pain and suffering. I tell you all this because I am your Friend, and as a Friend I want to take away your pain and suffering. So send me all your money and I will suffer for you. Cash is fine. You know how to reach me.
