“I’d rather have a heart of gold
Than all the treasure of the world.”

“We will answer their demand for a gold standard by saying to them: “You shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns, you shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold”

“Gold when first struck is crowded with ‘dirt’, uncertain, might not be flashy enough to be noticed.
However, if you are alert in your senses, you’d see that little glitter; if you’re persistent enough, it’ll be polished to be one of the finest ‘possessions’ you could ever acquire.
The beauty about gold, though, is that in all states from uncertainty to conviction, it never for once gives up its lustre.
We’re sometimes too hasty and ‘fly searching’ that we miss the little uncertain glitters that sparkle in the corners of our eyes.
In such rare moments, stop for a while, and hold on to it with the best grip you could muster.”

“A relationship that is truly genuine does not keep changing its colors. Real gold never rusts. If a relationship is really solid and golden, it will be unbreakable. Not even Time can destroy its shine.”
