True with money comes fear. Fear of losing it.

But some money is good it brings comfort. Once again it is about balance. Everything in life needs balance. 8)

Even love and hate need balance. :mrgreen:

I have no excuse.
It is unexplainable.
It is even inexorable.
It is not for extase.
But existence
Is inaccpetable.

I am excessive,
I love when desaxed,
When all exploses
When life get exhibed.
There are some exclamation,
But no explanations,
about this false complexe.

Life without excess
is inacceptable.

I believe the saying of people living in hot countries will be happier in certain extent. Because sunlight will stimulate those people to release some stimulant from the internal organ and this stimulant will bring one's feeling to its highest point.

Actually, taking bath and swimming affects people's mood and people who live in hot countries do that every day to keep their smell nice. So, they are happy and they have to be happy because they used to be happy. In my opinion, every one has to keep him/herself happy because on one can change the weather.

I'm from Vietnam, a tropical country, we're happy, of course, we can taste many kinds of fruits, vegetables around the year or we can bathe under the sunshine during summers. But actually sometimes we're really jealous with people in cold countries. We never have chances to play with snow, and we have to suffer a wet spring. I think in cold weather only few people go out to meet each other, that's the reason why we have a feeling that they're cold of miserable than hot climate living people :D

I'm from vietnam, too.I have never been to a foreign country before but I love skiing and playing with snow, in my country we must suffer from very hot weather in the summer and humidity from october to april whereas in europe countries it rarely rains because of cold weather.
I hate rains so I really want to go to another countries where don't have rain, maybe it is an imaginary dream, and it only come true in an desert.

hi everybody. I'm from Moscow, capital of Russia. I guess most of u heard about russian frosts, and must tell for me winter is the worst season. This winter the coldest temperature was -35 :cry:. that was smth incredible. I caught cold twise this winter. Pupils didn't study, cuz schools were closed, someone didn't work.
No doubt that sun affects pipl positively and not -30, when you have no desire to quit the house and freeze your feets, hands and nose outside. Now it is the end of March, and today morning it was -4, in the afternoon 0 +1. That's it. People in hot countries are happier cuz they do not have to buy all those winter garments, and put them all on. And they can enjoy sun all day long, every day. Lucky they are.
I prefer +35 rather than -35 :(

I think the weather doesn't affect your behavior much so wherever you are if you are an active, energetic and flexible person you are always in good mood.

Weather affects mood and memory. On a sunny day, everything looks hopefully. The bright sun lit up the meadow. The azure sky make you are in a good mood. Sunny day is the opposite of rain. Rainy day and overcast always make people feel upset easily. Generally speaking, most people of hot countries are optimistic. Although the weather was lazy, the people seem happy. So, I think the most people are happier in hot countries.

Do you like summer? In hot countries, every day is summer. The weather affects our mood and memory. First, everything looks hopeful on a sunny day. When the sun shine is bright and warm, we look at the azure sky and the bright sun lights up the meadow. It makes us in a good mood. On the other hand, rainy day and overcast always make people upset easily. Then, we can discover that the most people living in hot countries are optimistic. In brief, people are happy because they have a good mood. So, I believe that people live in hot countries are happier.

sure the temprature has a lot to do with people's mood, as for my small town people never go to see each other most of the summer when tempratures exceed 45C meaning they are less happy. where as others would not go out on winters depending on each country and it's weather. the least thing you hate about hot weather is sweating all day long which we experience half of the year

:geek: well, I dont think so

I am from a hot country, and there are lots of ppl who feel sad

Actually, it is a nature of human kind to feel a mixture of happiness and sadness

I wont like my life if it is always happy or always sad, it seems as there is nothing to stive to get,no goal, no motives.

Regarding cold climate, may be becoze they miss the sun :lol:

while in hot countries sun always shine, heh I notice ppl in England feel very happy when

summer comes :-o

Well, I think the happiness doesn't depend on the country or the climate, but depends on the surrounding environment.

Happiness is a state of mind. In the similar set of circumstances, people can be happy and unhappy at the same time. If our mind is trained to see hope and happiness, it will automatically target at being happy. {-:
