Money, which represents the prose of life, and which is hardly spoken of in parlors without an apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses.

Money brings about the 'blossoming' of the opportunities that come our way.

I think that Ralph would have had his views tempered if he had offered his girlfriend cash on Valentine's Day.

Money is the root of all evil, though lack of it is harmful as well... Isn't it beautiful in its contradictions?

Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.

Emerson gradually moved away from the religious and social beliefs of his contemporaries, formulating and expressing the philosophy of Transcendentalism in his 1836 essay, Nature. Following this ground-breaking work, he gave a speech entitled "The American Scholar" in 1837, which Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. considered to be America's "Intellectual Declaration of Independence

Money is a nice thing to have [as beautiful as a rose] in real life (the way it works in our society [in its effects and laws]), but when we talk about it, we usually shy away from the topic [hardly spoken of in parlors] and we hide our true feeling (denial its importance) towards it (feel guilty of not telling the truth [without an apology]).
