    Tasted Both

    I've had all the money I've needed in life... And I've had no money. .. I've been loved and if you have love you have that "sigh" at the end of the night in bed that says " all is right with the world" money doesn't fulfill the inner soul just the outer needs.

    Money Is Good, But Love Is Better.

    money can buy many things, but it can't buy love (well unless somebody is shallow and will stay with you and build a relationship out of having money). i am one of those people who don't care much about money. it does buy nice things, and it does pay bills, but that's about the...

    I Would Much Prefer Someone That I Could Connect to Than Their Wallet

    Having someone that you feel 100% comfortable with and who supports you can go much further than being with someone that is obsessed with working to achieve monetary success. I think it's great when people have both, but given the choice I truly believe that it's much better...

    More Pure

    Love is. Love is more pure in its experience than money. Love sustains you better than money. Both can be fleeting even though one might try support the other. Love is far superior to money.

    Money doesn't enrich one's life.

    Love does. That's why I'll always hate having to spend so much of my life working at a job. I'd rather live together with people in a strong community than to live alone in a strong economy. Thanks for making my life a waste by forcing me to live by money. I hate you.

    ...Love makes the world go round. I chose love to save my marriage. I gave up my career. Still, I lost a family. I had so much love to give. I even forgot loving myself. I had nothing because of love. Am I happy?

    Don'T Buy Me.

    He tries to buy my love. He doesn't get it. Just makes me hate him more. I'm stuck, because of the money; stability. My son needs a good life. But just because you talk about buying me diamonds and gadgets and garbage doesn't mean I shall bow down to you. Disgusting.

    Man Cannot Serve Two Masters
