I overheard Riddler Rick, muttering to himself. I decided to write it down, so what was he trying to tell?

Money and its simile
The answer to it all
The first word belongs to money
The second, money’s simile 
The words are both verbs
They are homophones, after all

If you are not familiar with Homophone Riddles, check out 1-11.

Hint 1:

Try to find "money's simile" first.

Hint 2:

The word sizes for each homophone are 4 letters and 5 letters.

    $\begingroup$ The answer is correct, but bread is supposed to be dough. Money => Dough. +1 and check :) $\endgroup$ – Duck Jan 1 at 20:04

Is it:

cash/cache. A cache of cash would certainly answer a lot of questions, both words can be verbs.

  • $\begingroup$ I know I keep saying this but try to find money's (figurative) simile. Then the homophone should become clearer. +1 :) $\endgroup$ – Duck Jan 1 at 19:30

I think it might be

Dye/Die

Money and its simile

"nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." - Benjamin Franklin.
In this way, to die is a simile for paying money in that they are both certainties.

The answer to it all

The two certainties.

The first word belongs to money

I think this refers either to the dye used to print paper money or possibly dye packs used to protect currency.

The second, money’s simile

Die, as explained above.

The words are both verbs

Die and dye are both verbs (dye is also a noun).

They are homophones, after all

Die and dye are pronounced the same.

  • $\begingroup$ Not correct, but here's another hint, when finding money's simile, try to think figuratively. $\endgroup$ – Duck Dec 31 '19 at 22:27
