    • "Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy you the kind of misery you prefer" - Unknown 
    • This quote reminds us that money can be a source of both joy and stress. Money cannot necessarily buy true happiness, but it can provide us with the means to pursue our dreams, travel, and experience new things. Money can also be a source of stress if we don't manage it properly or if we use it in ways that don't bring us true joy. Ultimately, it's important to remember that money is a tool and should be used thoughtfully and responsibly. 
    • Being discipline, content and living within your means.
