What is money really?

Awhile back a friend sent an email with this profound definition of Money.

Apparently there was some kind of a contest in England back in the early part of the 20th Century. 

I am not sure to whom this can be attributed but it is definitely worth pondering.

Here is the background and the quote:

"A young man who sent the following definition of the word “money” to a London paper won the prize. It may be well for us to memorize it.

 “Money is an article which may be used as a universal passport to everywhere except heaven, and as a universal provider of everything except happiness.”
