Is it right to write

There is no money needed, but only time.

when I am trying to express that money isn't required for a particular thing, only time is required?

1 Answer 1


The conjunction isn't necessary and introduces awkwardness. You could simply say:

There is no money needed (or required), only time.


No money is needed/required, only time.
