Had a chat with my sons. I thought at their age of 20 and 18 (soon) it is about time for some real adult talk.

So I asked them whether they’d prefer wisdom or gold.

The unanimous answer was gold.

They shot out the answer so fast that it might have been their emotional heart speaking and not their rational brain.

Granted, I daresay that most of us have the wish to be guests at the Banquet of Good Things and that many believe that with money/gold, this can be achieved.

So, let’s say that you manage to find a genie in a bottle and he grants you a free wish.  What would you wish for?  Would you wish for wisdom?  Or would you wish for gold?

Have you heard of the “Five Laws of Gold”? (“The Richest Man in Babylon” by George S. Clason)

Money comes to those who save. Money multiplies for those who invest it. Money stays with the person who entrusts
