    There's nothing wrong with being rich.  I've always thought it would be fun to have money to spare.Having said that, I don't need scads of money to be happy.Right now I'm on a fixed income.  It's not a large amount, but it keeps a roof over my head and food in my mouth.  It...

    Money Does Help Though..

    I do not NEED money to be happy. But let's face it, in this economy, the price of everything is going up, it would be more ideal to have more money. Just to make things less of a stretch on certain months. That is only reason I want more money in my life. Not loads just to make...

    A Little Goes a Long Way!

    I grew up poor, so I know how that is. Not that I ever want to be that poor again, but if I ever landed there, I could deal. BUT, as for the other extreme, of being rich... nah... it's not for me. The things in life that makes me happy are free. =p I just need enough money to...

    Root of All Evil!

    Is a true statement most of the problems in the world are caused by greed, look at the rich and see who is truely happy (not many) Of course you need money to be comfortable but most of the "things" you might think will bring you happpiness will not!

    Money = ???

    Money isn't everything to me--maybe it's because it's never been scarce and never been the center of my happiness.  I'm rich in health (most of the time) and rich in lessons learned.  Rich in friends and life, rich in love and integrity, dignity, compassion, sympathy...

    Not At All

    I could be happy with my girl, my pets, and my health. No money needed. I could live in a mud hut with my loved ones and be the happiest person on earth. I think too many people get caught up in the traditional materialistic sense of "success" and they miss out on what...

    Is It Odd?

    I really don't want to be rich. I just want to have enough money to live comfortably (ie: no grossly over-due bills, not starving, not worrying about being evicted) and to take care of myself. I know a lot of people who's goal is to make a ton of money and retire early and just...

    Not That It Hurts

    Money is great. It gives people the means to accomplish their goals, feed themselves, support their families, and has a multitude of other uses. However, the presence of money in life doesn't automatically equate happiness. Sure, it makes things easier, but money alone cannot...
