Money and time are the heaviest
burdens of life, and the unhappiest of all mortals
are those who have more of either than they know how to use
as a state coinage is said to have originated in Lydia in the
seventh century B.C. this enabled governments to issue coins whose
nominal value exceeded their value as medals. Paper, as money,
is very modern-only about 300 years old.
There is little doubt that money
is perhaps the universally most interesting object to all of us.
Money is a horror but what it can do is fantastic.
