    Love Is Enough

    Love is enough to get you through anything. Money, not so much. Money can only buy things. Things get you temporary happiness, but love can make you happy forever. It's one of those rare permanent things if you hit it lucky. Love kept me from killing myself during a very dark...

    Forever and For Always

    When you figure out love is all that matters after all, it sure makes everything else seem so small................

    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

    I'm not religious, but I do believe the Bible (and other sacred writings) contain gems of truth. One such is when Jesus spoke of how man cannot serve both God and mammon (money). Either you will love one and despite the other, or else cling to latter and reject the former. My ex...

    It True and I Regret Making the Wrong Choice

    All the money in the world isn't going to love you back or hold you to make you feel safe. I lost someone who I thought was amazing only to have my mother not like him and confused my thoughts into breaking up with him. I regret it and regret it. Now I can only wish to find...

    Some of the most poor live the happiest life

    because everything is so precious to them. I rather be poor and happy living with the ones I love than have all the money in the world. Love rules my world not money. The "fortunate" are unfortunately living, taking advantage of everything they have, not knowing what true...

    Because It Is All That Matters to Me.

    I have a good job, I earn (just) enough money but without love what is the point? The love of my life is waiting for me on the other side of the world and to get to him I have to give up everything I have and everything I know. A big sacrifice for some? Not to me. I would rather...

    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.

    Love Or Money?

    Love. Definately Love. You can not buy love. You can not sell it. True love will never be forsaken. 1st Corinthians Chapter 13, verse 1-13 1 If I speak in human and angelic tongues 2 but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. 2 And if I have the gift of...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    They say that money cannot buy happiness.

    ...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?
