This sign above a stall in the Maasai craft market in Arusha, Tanzania spells out a philosophy for life about money and what is really worthwhile in the big picture. It’s a great African perspective on the value of things in life. This is a documentary photo with the message in the actual image.
As the sign says: MONEY
can buy bed but not sleep
books but not brain
cosmetics but not beauty
a house but not a home
food but not appetite
religion but not salvation
luxuries but not culture
a passport to anywhere
but not HEAVEN
