A man's wealth


A man’s wealth cannot be measured in gold or jewels, nor can they be measured in any other kind of currency.

All wealth falls.

All possessions crumble to dust.

The weight of a man can be found in the people he stands by, in the family that he chooses, and the world he shapes with them.

These are treasures, worth more per ounce, inch, or denomination.

Because when they are gone, they are missed the most.

No body cries for a dollar spent, yet it’s gone just the same.

A man builds this wealth and he takes pride in watching it grow.

Love matures better than any interest.

May you always be wealthy, in this life and the next.
