Money is a terrible master but an excellent servant.

-P.T. Barnum


Looking at the books is rarely a happy pass time for people.  Economics defines itself as the art of satisfying unlimited wants with limited resources.  So, not having as much as you might like is a common situation.

Many people use ignorance as their protection, but that just causes problems.  Managing your money is like mowing your lawn.  If you do things right, you’ll never have a problem, but if you let it get out of hand, you might never get it right again.

So, next time you push away those books, ask yourself, will you serve money, or will it serve you?
