Buck: (n) slang for a dollar
I don’t know who gets to decide what’s important and what isn’t.
I’m not really sure how we place value on one thing while assigning insignificance to another.
There are times when a single dollar bill seemed so unimportant to me that I joked around with a friend and took a match and burned it, just to see what it felt like.
Then there were occasions when I rummaged through the seat cushions of my car because I thought I remembered dropping a dollar bill down there.
Also, if there’s some sort of problem when “the buck stops”–and it more than likely will be here–maybe it would be a good idea to do more to prepare for buck stoppage.
- What is important, what is worthless?
- What is without value, and what is invaluable?
There is one constant mistake humans make which triggers all the afflictions that trouble our species: we misuse what we have because we’re either anticipating or demanding more.
Just solving that misdemeanor can set in motion a lifestyle which salvages the little … and transforms it into much.
