- Phyllis Singer used to be a columnist for the Waterloo Courier. Some years ago, she told the following story in her column: “A wealthy businessman once offered $4,000 to anyone who could convincingly name four things which money could not buy. He was positive that no one would be able to meet the challenge. He smiled skeptically when one man took a pad and pencil, wrote four short lines and passed the note to him.
“He glanced at it, then gave it a more studied look. ‘Without a word, he got out his checkbook and made good on his promise. The list of the four things money could not buy read: 1. A baby’s smile; 2. Youth after it is gone; 3. The love of a good woman; 4. Entrance into heaven.’”
