    I have always thought of it this way.

    People go on about how much they give me, materiel wise, and I appreciate that. But I would be ten times happier living in a cardboard box with my whole family and people who loved me then in a massive great house with all the treasures of the world. That is how I am :)

    Not Love

    That's too easy to say.  And believe it or not, some people's love can be bought.  I know two people who have proved this.  It's not as simple as a banking transaction, but money is what made it. Happiness?  I don't know.  You're supposed to be able to...

    If I only wanted things

    that money could buy, I would be perfectly content with life. Instead I want true love from a woman I have never met. You cannot buy love, you cannot pay someone to truly care, you can only find that person and love them.
