 and the value of nothing

The price of everything and the value of nothing… 

"In Lady Windemere's Fan, Oscar Wilde had Lord Darlington quip that a cynic was 'a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.' ... Lady Windermere’s Fan was written in 1892, but what Wilde wrote is even more true now than it was 122 years ago.”

                                                                                       Oscar Wilde, 1892

“In this quote Oscar Wilde is saying that if you focus on what things cost, as opposed to what they can do for you, you end up becoming bitter and negative (in other words, you’ll be a cynic) and won’t make the most of your situation."
