A BALANCED VIEW

The best things in life are free
But you can give them to the birds and bees
I need money, lots and lots of money

Its not the love of money
but the LACK of money
that’s the root of all evil.

Money is the spice of life
You can live without it
But life tastes better with it.

Money is the vehicle of power
Wherever money goes power follows

Money is like intelligence
The more you have the smarter you are

A POEM
Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
Clean favored, and imperially slim.
And he was always quietly arrayed,
And he was always human when he talked;
But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
"Good-morning," and he glittered when he walked.
And he was rich - yes, richer than a king -
And admirably schooled in every grace;
In fine we thought that he was everything
To make us wish that we were in his place.
So on we worked, and waited for the light,
And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;
And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
Went home and put a bullet through his head.
E.A. Robinson

all your wisdom posts,thanks!

more my feelings. People nowadays are all loneliness in deep heart even have many friends, even laugh loudly at the table. Money problems make them can't breath freely. All you girls and guys including me I think had clearly understood what important things we need to cherish. However, Do we feel contradictions all the time? Are your parents,your best friend, your lover satisfied with you? Let's forget it, I guess none can escape from it. What I truly want to talk I think is why we are controlled by money monster, how to deal with this strange world who is losting nature, becoming so cool...(not sure I put my mind in a clear way)

Throw me into the valley,then I will abandon money

I do envy those who could abandon the material life for purchasing dream. I do admire those who would distribute all their fortune to the charity. I am now living in a material society. No place could charge me nothing. I have to earn the money and save them for my life.

But If I was thrown into a valley without any neigbours, I will give up money. There is no  use for keeping the money. Only hunting and picking the fruit could you prepare your food.

But who gonna live there forever.

I don't want to .
That means I will not abandon money.

reply: the role of money

if money can meet my basic needs, thats enough!  

except the money saved for an emergency use, the rest would be like the waste paper of little use. it's a wonderful idea to devote it to the needy situations such as the starvation of hunger and diseases. hehe..its really a honorable behavior..!!

mmm

Why do I get the feeling that Chinese people have a stock of 'correct' answers to many problems?

Why does every Chinese person say the same thing about money and yet China's one of the most money-hungry societies on earth?
