All the gold which is under or upon the earth is not enough to give in exchange for virtue.
Art is like baby shoes. When you coat them with gold, they can no longer be worn.
As every thread of gold is valuable, so is every moment of time.
For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.
Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth,
but by washing away from it all that is not gold.
Don’t miss all the beautiful colors of the rainbow looking for that pot of gold.
Silence is golden.
Make new friends but keep the old.
One is silver and the other gold.
Lyrics of traditional girl scout song by Joseph Parry
It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
The most pitiful among men is he who turns his dreams into silver and gold.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
