    Having money is nice

    and it is a means to an end, of sorts, however, Money Can't Buy Love!! Without the Emotional Intimacy or whatever a person needs personally, money is Not the "End All, Beat All!" My H makes an incredible living and has been a fabulous provider , however, there IS MORE to Life...

    It's paper for crying out loud.

    People kill one another for paper. Probably recycled paper too which makes it even more USELESS. The wealthiest man is a man without money.

    Just look at the water crisis.

    People work their lives away

    for money rather than happiness. What's worse is the inability to live if you don't work. I bet hitting that goal this week or getting that A in school really make the world a better place. But then again, I guess not everybody cares about improving the world.

    It is nuts! Everyone is all over money

    when who cares? I prefer the love of God over money! Money may be useful sometimes but when people are cheapskates then that's crazy!

    Everybody worries too much about money.

    Sadly those who have it seem determined to ensure those without continue to want.

    Not until I lost the most important person in

    my life, as cliche as it may sound, I wouldn't realize that it't not always about the money. I was bargaining to Him, I could trade whatever I have just for Him to prolong his life, but in the end, I still lost that someone.

    The $2 Bill

    I walked in to a Burger King at my mall, hoping to buy lunch. All I had in my wallet was a $2 bill and a $50 bill. I order the small burger for $1.50, and hand the cashere my $2 bill. The cashere stares at my bill for a long time. Then he calls for his boss. This following...

    A Coin

    I think that it is a waste of time to care too much about money. Even having too much money seems rather unpleasant to me because when you do, apparently you inevitably feel the need to make sure that you don't lose it, worse: you want it to grow. Think of what you could do with...

    and disturbing the things people do to acquire more and more money; even at the expense of others.

    Hmm

    This is a touchy subject, because without money, it is rather difficult to live in today's world. However, far too many people place far too much importance on the stuff. When it starts to cloud your judgment and corrupt you, it's a problem. Money is like any other luxury- it's...

    How long will it take to see this monetary system go down? I don't have a clue, I know though it will! It is not the question "will it", no the real question is "when will it". xW

    Oh yes, it's a necessary evil

    and all that, a tool to acquire the things you want, but it dominates us. The environment would be cleaned up but for the fact they don't see the beauty of Nature they see the cost in money!

    Money Doesn't Make The World Go Round. Gravity Does

    If you never think you don't have enough money, you never will. Some people just keep moving the goalposts further and further, live a certain lifestyle and worry about losing it. You can't take it with you when you die, money burns faster than bones.

    You Need Money To Eat. . .

    People need money. You need money to live and enjoy your life. It's easy for someone with more than enough to say money isn't important, but it's really hard for someone who's struggling to pay their bills to say the same thing. So I care about money. I want enough money to...

    I find people's obsession with money to be

    repugnant. In this country, the good ol' USA, too many people worship money as if it were a god or something.  Money is an evil.  It corrupts people and society.  At best, money is a necessary evil that one needs for food, lodging, heat, and other basic necessities...
