Oscar Wilde – Money Is the Most Important Thing

“When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life. Now that I am old, I know that it is.”

-Oscar Wilde

Oh to be young again, with the carefree and naivety in the ways of the world concerning money. When you could spend whatever you wanted because you wanted it, and when you didn’t need to actually earn the money because it came pretty much supplied to you from parents. The true meaning of earning money is lost on the young, I remember feeling entitled to it, and now I know I was wrong. Money was a vastly important thing as a child, and I thought it was the most important thing, but I didn’t realize the true meaning of not being able to live without it until later. Don’t underestimate the power of money. Even just a little bit extra can go a long way towards making a better future.
