    Money Isn't Everything

    I grew up in a very comfortable household. I had a nanny and my parents spoiled me. But money isn't everything. My father missed out in many important events in my life. When he didn't attend my graduations or anything that required your parents being there. He will just buy gift...

    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...

    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!

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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

    I understand that we need money to live,

    but some people act ridiculous with money. Some people may have a family member that needs help and the one that is most financially able to help won't help. Money is meant to spent, yes, save what you need to save, pay what you need to pay but what's wrong with helping someone...

    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.

    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...

    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.
