    The meaning of a weird sentence

    << If you have money you can make the ghosts and devils turn your grind stone>>

    I "googled" it and it seems to be a Chinese proverb which means something like "if you have money you can do anything."

    Take a look for instance at Melanie Finney's page:
    Language and Proverbs

    By the way, in which book have you found it?
