On Money and Happiness


Contentment is the greatest wealth one can cherish to have.

If money could buy happiness and wisdom, the rich people would have bought tonnes of these, but there is a Kashmiri saying: 'YAS KAN TAS NA SOUN TA YAS SOUN TAS NA KAN' meaning he who has ears has no gold and he who has gold has no ears. Similarly Sheikh Sadi Shirazi says in a parable, 'Don't presume the person possessing wealth to be rich, instead the rich person is the one who has a rich heart'.
