Large Printable Quotes for Posting
"Money may buy the husk of many things, but not the kernal. It brings you food, but not the appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; days of joy, but not happiness."
"A man who examines the saddle and bridle and not the animal itself when he is out to buy a horse is a fool; similarly, only an absolute fool values a man according to his clothes, or according to his position, which after all is only something we wear like clothing."
"Do not spend money for that which is of no worth, nor your labor for that which cannot satisfy."
-2 Nephi 9:51-
