Money is a good servant, but a bad master
This page is about the saying "Money is a good servant, but a bad master"
If you have money, it will serve you and work for you well. But if you owe money to other people, that money will control you in an unpleasant way.
servant (noun) = a person who performs duties for other people | master (noun) = a person who controls other people
If it's true that "money is a good servant, but a bad master", which of these would be preferable?
