seek the kernel

"For money you can have everything it is said.
No, that is not true.
You can buy food, but not appetite;
medicine, but not health;
soft beds, but not sleep;
knowledge but not intelligence;
glitter, but not comfort;
fun, but not pleasure;
acquaintances, but not friendship;
servants, but not faithfulness;
grey hair, but not honor;
quiet days, but not peace.
The shell of all things you can get for money.
But not the kernel.
That cannot be had for money."

-Arne Garborg, writer (1851-1924)
