"These little grey cells. It is up to them."
I think she means it is up to those who own them (that is us) to utilise them well.
Or it may be referring to something else, based on the context where the quote was mentioned; is it mentioned in one of her books?

In other words, don't let money be an end; let it be only a means.
Topic: Adding 's to a Word

Thank you so much all. I appreciate all your replies. You made it clear that it'd be problematic if I added 's to an inanimate object. However, I like Drag0nspeaker's answer, i.e., to change the structure but keep the meaning of the sentence.

Thank you again all

Topic: Adding 's to a Word

Hello all,
I'm translating an Arabic text into English. In a sentence that reads: "on the strength of the right of the Centre of Excellence, the foundation should have...", can I say: "On the strength of The Centre of Excellence's right...."?
In other words, can I add the "'s" after the word 'Excellence', which is part of the center's name, or I must add it after the word 'Centre'??

Thank you RoadRunner. It did not make any sense for me also.
