“Money. We work for it, spend it, covet it and cherish it. We define our success by its existence, and decry our failure due to its lack. And we pass our obsessions with it, and our ignorance of it, on to our children. We look to it for security, and yet most of us lack the basic comprehension of how it can provide that. Finally, while we’re busy trying to put our hands on as much of it as we can, it can grab us and choke us and tell us when, and how much, to breathe.

Life is not about the pursuit of wealth; it is, instead, about forging strong ties with family, with friends, and within our communities. Money, its acquisition and use, is merely one tool that helps us to build these ties.”

Peggy Munro, E.A
