Saw this on Blue Bloods. I'm not sure if I have it right but it was something like, "You know the price of everything but the value of nothing." It was said by the character on the show named Danny.
It just struck me, because I know a woman who used to tell you the price of everything. She did come from a poor background, and I think that is why she was so caught up in the price of things.
However, I do believe she knew true value when it came to relationships.
The funny thing is she didn't hoard anything. Once she told my mother to go look in a drawer for a quilt. My mother had to open every drawer until she found it. She told me the only thing in the chest was the quilt. This lady was known to give things away.
So the above quote doesn't apply to her, but it does apply to so many. If you were the last person on earth, things wouldn't mean much. You would have nobody to impress but most importantly nobody to share it with.
