Matt - I suppose. But I also might not be.

Kiri - Yeah, I don't know what DD is doing.
Vaarka - He's doin'a thingy do

DD - The best advice most often goes unheeded.
Wise Man - KYS, DD.

What is so silly about walking around in a forest or along the ocean enjoying the things that are totally free to look at?

Do you think everything that does not cost money is free?

Even money is free depending on how you perceive it to be. There are many people who don't even think about money as it pours into their bank accounts. They don't see money in the same way as poor people see it. Money is free to those who don't have to think about it but it's definitely not free for those who have to work their butts off for it.

Why do you think money has to do with being free or not?

Money isn't free, but it is far from the best thing in life anyway.

Money is one way of paying for the good things in life, but it is not the only way.

Go ask spoiled children of very wealthy people if money is free or not.

Money is also a way to pay for bad things in life but it's not the only way.

Did you know money is a trick in the minds of men?

I don't understand. If you don't think money is among the best things in the world either, what does whether it is free have to do with the title of this thread, which reffers to the best things in life?

I'm not here to argue with you. I'm only sharing my wisdom with you about the best things in life that are free. I enjoy walking on the beach and in the forest. Do you?

There are good things that don't cost much, but are the best things free? What are the best things in life? Successfully raising a child rates high, but it's expensive!
Like all proverbs, it's not literally true ( stitch in time doesn't always save exactly 9), but there is 'something in it'.

The best things in life is subjective to each person. Money can be the best (FREE) thing for children of very wealthy people who never have to work for it.

Money only has whatever value the guy holding the gun to your head says it has. Currently, that's the US government which has a military equal to at least the next six largest in the world combined. You'll have to ask the Pentagon whether the best things in life are free, but one wit noted that when the Soviet Union fell apart freedom in the free world became much more expensive.

'Free' meaning not costing money? Probably.

'Free' meaning no opportunity cost? Not at all.
The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor

You can pick your friends,
You can pick your friend's nose if they'll let you,
But you can never pick your relatives,
Much less who the hell ever listens.

I suppose it's possible that what they meant is that the best things in life don't cost money. In that sense it wpuld be just as true as its literal sense is false, which is to say-very much so.
