The stone, the kernel and balance.

For money you can have everything it is said.

No that is not true.

You can
buy food, but not appetite;
medicine, but not health;
soft beds, but not sleep;
knowledge but not intelligence;
glitter, but not comfort;
fun, but not pleasure;
acquaintances, but not friendship;
servants, but not faithfulness;
grey hair, but not honor;
quiet days, but not peace.

The shell of all things you can get for money.
But not the kernel.
That cannot be had for money.
