Money can’t buy you love,
But you can buy more time.
Beware because sometimes,
Fun time morphs into a hell of a time;
Especially when you’ve run out of money,
And can’t buy your way back home,
El dinero no puede comprarte amor,
Pero puedes comprar más tiempo.
Cuidado porque a veces,
El tiempo divertido se convierte en un infierno;
Especialmente cuando te quedas sin dinero,
Y no puedes comprar tu camino de regreso,
A la libertad.

The Less You Want, The More You Have
Commentary: When you love somebody, you receive joy by giving tangible gifts to your loved one. The only way to make human interactions is through fiscal transactions. However, if you become broke, you can’t give anything of value anymore—so what can you do, to let your loved ones know—you’re thinking about them? You could offer them your time, but after a while, you’d become annoying and nobody would want you around, especially if you have your own opinions. In the end your heart would have to move on, along with your love for them, causing your heart to become jaded, because it was only being used for gain.
“All human activity is prompted by desire. There is a wholly fallacious theory advanced by some earnest moralists to the effect that it is possible to resist desire in the interests of duty and moral principle. I say this is fallacious, not because no man ever acts from a sense of duty, but because duty has no hold on him unless he desires to be dutiful. If you wish to know what men will do, you must know not only, or principally, their material circumstances, but rather the whole system of their desires with their relative strengths.” Excerpt from The Four Desires Driving All Human Behavior
