The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.” ~Henry David Thoreau
This is true and gives new meaning to the phrase time is money. The reason people have so much emotion wrapped up in money is the time it takes to attain it. When you buy something and exchange money for it, what you’re really exchanging is the time it took you to earn the money, so your time is what really paid for everything you have in your life. Looking at money as your life energy will either make you feel better about it, or worse, depending on how much you have and how hard you feel you’ve worked to obtain it.
