Gold is used as the standard for many currencies (the gold standard). Time is often measured with reference to gold (golden anniversaries). Gold is also employed as a symbol of enduring marriage (wedding rings). Even great human achievements are frequently rewarded with gold (gold medals). Which is why gold is also used to express the highest ethical principle to live by: The Golden Rule—“Do unto others what you want them to do unto you.” (Matthew7:12; cf. Luke 6:31). Without the Golden Rule, our continent, and indeed the whole world will be impoverished. For, gold without a Golden Rule is poverty and misery.—S.K. Pipim, The Transformed Mind, pp. 221-222.
