Judging someone by their material possessions just doesn't cut it for me at all.  The label in your clothes, the logo on your luggage and the car you drive doesn't mean that you are thoughtful, kind and warm. 

Equally, it doesn't follow that someone with money cannot have those qualities I look for in a person.  Unfortunately, we live in a world where the sparkly bling blinds us to the more genuine human qualities which can be forgotten.  It seems awful that people can be so impressed by relatively unimportant things.  It's just so shallow.

Thanks Sappy and Polly. It would be an ideal world where people are not judged by what they own. Perhaps the current economic downturn will serve as a wake up call for people to appreciate the simpler things in life. Maybe that will be the good to come out of it all. We can hope anyway.

Well said Blissy. It's hard for me to understand why some people are so dazzled by the superficial they can't see or don't care what lies beneath it. The same way people may overlook the plain and ordinary without realizing there is a gem hidden inside.
