- Robert Louis Stevenson

About this Quote

This quote by Robert Louis Stevenson talks to the idea that cash can come at an expense. In this case, the expense is our liberty. This could suggest that in order to make money, we might need to compromise our freedom. We may have to work long hours, take on jobs that we don't necessarily wish to do, or make decisions that we do not necessarily concur with. We may need to quit our time, our energy, and our autonomy in order to make money. This quote is a reminder that cash is not totally free which it can come at a cost. It is necessary to bear in mind that while money is very important, it is not worth compromising our freedom for. We must make every effort to make money in a way that does not jeopardize our liberty.
