Money can't buy sunsets, songs of wild birds and the music of the wind in the trees—these are as free as the air we breath. Money can't buy inward peace—peace is the result of a constructive philosophy in life. Money can't buy a good character—good character is achieved through decent habits of private living and wholesome dealings in our open contacts with our fellow men.
