I both despise and adore money. But to be honest, I think I have to agree that I believe money is the root of all evil. The biggest source of misery in my life isn't my lack of money, per say, but rather the means by which I procure it. That being my job. I hate my job. So much. Everyday I walk in, I really just want to turn and walk back out. The only reason I'm still there and haven't quit is because I can't afford to not have a job, and I can't afford to take anything that pays less than what I'm paid right now. Which also limits my options on what other jobs I can pursue and acquire.

I hate money only because you have to have money. Without it, your screwed, and it's not exactly easy to come by.

Quit your job and make a living by scamming other people.

Hahaha, wow, money ISN'T everything. I know that first hand from both sides of the spectrum. Money can't buy the experience or appreciation of small things. Everything is big and grand and "perfect", thus more, more, more is needed to remain happy. I can not deny the attraction of money but if I was always rich and never had to worry about it I would have missed out on some of the best times of my life. And I wouldn't give those away for any amount of money because life is only about enjoying those kind of experiences. You can know true love between people without money, with money you are never sure that the people who think love you really do, or if the money is a rope they cling on.

I agree, money is not everything. Some things in life cannot be bought with money and when it comes to people and things they would do for money, sure, some would do pretty much anything for money, but people with really high moral standards do exist, which means some people would never stoop really low in order to gain money.

There are people with morals out there in this vast world? I haven't found one for years

I'm sorry to hear that, I guess we have something in common then. Me neither, at least not in real life for a very long time. People like that are rare.

For me,I totally disagree.Today,almost everything can be bought by money.
Do u agree or disagree and why??


You can buy health, you can buy love, you can buy fertility, you can buy ... err...no you can't actually.
You've used the word almost in your post, implying that you don't believe it either, or am I mistaken? If you can buy "almost everything" it shows that money is not everything.

It's not everything because the best things in life aren't free. You aren't going to be truly happy if you buy everything. Sure you'll get attention and a lot of cool things, but in the end, it's not worth it.

Money makes life less stressful but doesn't give you true happiness.

Money Isn't everything, but its most of it.

It's not everything... but it can buy just about anything else you feel you are missing in life.

When you learn that money can buy a man a woman to simply cuddle with at Soineya in the Akihabara district of Tokyo, I think you can conclude that money is everything..
