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)

Experts have / their expert fun / ex cathedra / telling one / just how nothing / can be done. –Piet Hein, poet and scientist (1905-1996)

A man’s first care should be to avoid the reproaches of his own heart, his next to escape the censures of the world. –Joseph Addison, essayist and poet (1672-1719)
