You are right.......but when we don't have any money...and we should call it "struggles to survive " its not love of money ...i think

I gess ..."Love of Money " means rich people or sometimes poor people also think money is everything and so badly want for it..

I think so

In my opinion, money is not everything, but it is necessary. The aim of our life is not for money but for the happiness and success. :D

I think Lee is right. Money can be the source of all kind of evil. The search for wealth has lead the world to many wars, ending obviously in disasters.

Love of money

Postby Lac » Mon Jan 01, 2007 6:33 am

Hey,
Agree with you all. It's not bad to love money but how to use it for selfish aims. It's money that give you will and energy to reach the goal, isnt it ? That's an evident truth in our life. Money could bring happiness and at the same time result in damages and losses if used in the wrong way. Everyone knows it.
The evils could be originated from penuriousness as well.It's no surprising that not few mothers were ruthless enough to sell their daughters into prostitution for expenditures to cover their own strained circumstances. And many many more similar cases have been occuring.
