    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...

    Intangibles

    Even though I work in a prison, I find that I sometimes gain insight and wisdom from conversations with my patients.  The other day I was talking to an inmate, and he told me a story.  In the beginning of the great depression a very wealthy man lost his fortune...

    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 :)

    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.

    Standard Issue

    Like most I want love, true love and understanding.  Someone to be there and share life with.  Something natural and right.  But I wouldn't mind a new car, nice house, and a huge tv. :P
