When people say that so-and-so 'knows the cost of everything, but the value of nothing', it sounds as if they're being critical in the extreme. Yet this old saying can be applied to all of us. Who doesn't worry about money? Aren't we all sometimes tempted by the delights of the material world? The situation facing you is easy to find fault with. You're caught in a circle of criticism. While you pick other people's ideas to pieces, they're doing the same thing with yours. You can find a compromise today.
