The Value of a Stamp

What is the value of a stamp?  Not its price (which is always changing) but its function or its usefulness? In reality, a stamp is nothing more than a small scrap of paper with some adhesive on the back of it.  So what give it its value?

The money we pay for the stamp is not really for the stamp itself, but for the service we get. Without a stamp on an envelope, a letter doesn't get too far. The stamps value is that it provides service and sticks with the envelope from the moment it leave it starts its journey until it reaches its destination.

The lesson here is that many people could learn a lot if they decided to be like a stamp-start something and stick with it until they reach the goal or end result.
