25 August: Using Money

Boar Lane, Leeds by Atkinson Grimshaw.

Money, to be sure, of itself is of no use; for its only use is to part with it.

Life of Johnson, Volume 1 1709-1765 by James Boswell.

Johnson had known poverty when first he moved to London, so was not speaking condescendingly.

And I say to you: Make unto you friends of the mammon of iniquity; that when you shall fail, they may receive you into everlasting dwellings.

Luke 16:9
