»Money, Not Everything«

by Sahaj Sabharwal, November 5, 2018

Money can buy Food but not Nutrition.
Money can buy Gifts but not Thanks.
Money can buy Blanket but not Warmth.
Money can buy Books but not Knowledge.
Money can buy Blood but not Life.

Money can buy Clock but not Time.
Money can buy Air Conditioner but not coolness.
Money can buy Bulb but not Brightness.
Money can buy High Post but not Respect.
Money can buy Sugar but not Sweetness.
