Money means different things to different people.
It can buy a bed but not sleep.
It can buy a clock but not time.
It can buy you a book but not knowledge.
It can buy you a position but not class and respect.
It can buy you medicine but not health.
It can buy you blood but not life.
What does money mean to you? In up to 30 words, express your opinion about money.

In this comment you are supposed to write a sentence beginning: I've learnt... It should be an example of what you have learnt from your own experience. Then explain how you came to this conclusion by giving a few details. Keep it short, don't write more than 50 words.
I have learnt painfully that even the most precise plans can be ruined by adverse circumstances.
Explanation: My trip to England had been planned in detail two months in advance. However, it was cancelled in the last minute due to volcanic eruption in Iceland. Therefore, I had to travel by coach for a day and two nights instead of two and a half hours to attend the courses in Oxford.
Now, what have you learnt?
