Quick Money – Here now, Gone tomorrow

Gambling promises the poor what property performs for the rich—something for nothing. ~George Bernard Shaw
We live in the era of ‘INSTANTS’. From instant coffee to instant noodles, from instant internet connection to instant celebrity status, from instant millionaire to instant wife, and on and on –name it, you’ll have it in an instant. Yeah! ‘Instant mentality’ pervades in our way of life, that we no longer value hard work and patience. More so, it is no wonder that many are lured into instant or quick money schemes. Some are even hoping that a single winning lottery ticket or a huge jackpot from one of the best casinos online is their sure way out of poverty. I can’t blame them. Quick and easy money is desirable. However, what they don’t realize, quick money here and now is also quickly gone tomorrow.

There is no sweeter fruit than the fruit of hard work and patience.
