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.

Money can bring to you happiness,success; money also bring to you alot of troubles. The root of criminal is money. I agree with Lee and Dixie.

Money

Postby Lac » Tue Jan 02, 2007 9:52 am

Hi,
If you re-read my mail recently posted, you would see the point i would like to emphasize. Money itself is just a kind of paper which means nothing unless it is used in the right or wrong way. So to my humble idea, money is not the root of the evils but the ways of using it in the specific aims for one's selfish evils regardless of others.
The boundary of the wrong and the right in terms of using $ is often ambiguous. One can do something that we all know is money laudering in which the money is used for public profit.

im really impressed with all your opinions, but dont you think that in this world we created money helps a lot to be happy? in my opinion its completely necessary to be happy because even when you love someone and you wanna make that person happy its not only with hugs and kisses that you will help solving all her/his problems, this is the world and the societies we have and there's noting we can do now, thought.

I agree with you Rui when you say 'in this world we created': we associate money with happiness, while there are some places in the world - far away from our culture - where people are happy without owning money, houses, etc.
I wonder what's the real happiness?

Money Matter

Postby kcarun » Thu Jan 04, 2007 6:26 am

Hi Lee,

Your idea is Great , In our present transation money has a major part in our life, and we are all human beings ans God created us in such a way, to desereve more and more...

And our desire will continue till our end. My first dream was a n Electronic Watch.later i got it from one of my relative then next was a Cordless phone ,my friend gave me a second hand one..then for a bike ,I struggled for one in my college days but my parents refused. and after that i got it.. and next for a 4 wheeler, I bought a second hand old vehicle & unfortunatly that was a wrong decission.. U belive it or note today only i disposed it , I lost 12000 indian rupees in that deal.

Now my dream is a Good Job, My friends are well settled. and then a New Car is my current Dream. and I have to visit some particular places in Different Countries ( Piramid In Egipt, Ephal towe. Nile river etcc...) I dont know How his (God) schedule about me. ?????

Money leads to happy

Postby Lac » Thu Jan 04, 2007 2:23 pm

All of your ideas are quite like mine. Money alone could bring about happiness,could solve almost necessities in our life, more exactly, it seems overwhelmingly dominate our life. We propably have no words to explain completely the wrong and right ways of using money. It's only like this:
- Money creates a new house but give you no warmness of the house
- Money does not give you love unless you know how to love not based merely on money itself.
- Money does not make happiness but materials for happiness.
You defintely have your more idears to complement this.

i am not agree with it, money is innocent, the most improtant is the man, i think if you are a kindness man, and if you have much money , it can help many people you use it. of coure , if you are a evil, and you have much money, maybe that's very dangerous. this is just my opinion!

I agree with this point of view that money or extravagance leads a person to wrong path and he starts doing which are totally destructive for his career and life, such as regular parties, being with friends late nights, buying expensive materials and spending money on unnecessary things
