"Money, which represents the prose of life, and which is hardly spoken of in parlors without an apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
(1803-1882) American essayist, lecturer, and poet

Reader comments about this quote:
Money is simply printed by the government.
 -- Joe, Rochester, MI     
     -- Steph, Islamorada      
    The narrowed observation of money is here limited to science and law which truly represents or expresses a prose of life. All else that is called money, that is inharmonious to the absolutism of science and law, can not rise to the definitive  beautiful as roses.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Money must be regulated like food and drink. The quality of the money received must under careful consideration and concern. Socialist don't rob banks, sorry my Leninists and Stalinist buddies. Socialism is the challenge of social abilities to create appropriate behavior.

    Correction: The quality of the money received must be under careful consideration and concern.
     -- Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown     
    Money, food and drink's regulation may be extremely antithetical to nature's law. Sillik, your overly general / broad statement is way to shallow and doesn't make sense unless you define your terms. By example, real money is regulated by weights and measures; and, food and drink may be regulated by nature's adjudicated health to the end user (i.e. sellers will be held responsible for knowingly selling products infected with botulism). A government of carnal gods, such as socialism, harm humanity by economically regulating money, food and drink (by example; equalizing prices, inflation, etc.)
