Today´s Quotation is from Louise Penny: The Murder Stone.
‘What sums do you do, when you come here? You don´t count birds, and I don´t think you count money.’
Finney smiled. ‘You know what money buys?’
Gamache shook his head.
‘I am an accountant and I´ve spent a lifetime counting money and watching the people who have it. Do you know what I´ve decided? The only thing money really buys?’
‘Space?’ Gamache repeated.
‘A bigger house, a bigger car, a larger hotel room. First class plane tickets. But it doesn´t even buy comfort. No one complains more than the rich and entitled. Comfort, security, ease. None of that comes with money.’
