Money may not have the power to buy happiness, but it sure can stress us out. In fact, a survey by the American Psychological Association pinpointed money as the leading cause of stress for Americans, with 72 percent saying they had felt at least some stress about money in the previous month. What’s more, about one-third of adults with partners said money is a major cause of conflict in their relationship.

Today I have a quote from Robert Heinlein (1907-1988) an American science-fiction author. It was originally in his book “Stranger in a Strange Land” (1961) and a variant of it was used again in “The Cat Who Walks Through Walls” (1985).
