remembering wisdom

Something my father keeps telling me that his father used to tell him:

Pay as much as you need to for things that matter, and as little as you can for things that don't. And never borrow money to pay for something that goes down in value.

Thats so true. Reminds me of a similar quote from Sir MV -
"If you buy something that you don't need, You will need what you cannot buy"

You find this on the back cover of passbooks from State Bank of Mysore, founded by Sir M Vishweshwaraiah
