That is very philosophical i feel...its hard to find someone who's not lusty. health is of course the wealth but to satisfy needs, you need to possess one of these four.. i'm quite sure people crave for one these other than their family and health....

not me im completely happy with my life the way it is. money fame and power dont come into it with me. i see the bigger picture and what life is really about the most important things in life money cant buy. i cant understand shallow people who lust after fame and money. i think these people have well and truly missed the boat.

I want success because I think fame and money would come along with it. Power would be nice if I could use it for the purposes of good, so hopefully I would inherit it somehow with the fame and money. Plus I hope to have my health for awhile, but if I had to die young and successful that wouldn't be too bad.

power and success brings both fame and money...to most people i believe money is the main desire and to get it, they crave for power, success or fame. well i would surely say, being an engineering student i'd choose the success path to money.

Personally, success is the most matter. If you're succesful, at least you will have money. If you feel successful, you will also tend to be happy in your life because your goal and objective have been achieved. You can tell what you have done in life to God. Fame doesn't always bring happiness. Besides, there are two types of fame (good fame or bad fame). Bad fame only brings shameful. Good fame may not always offer happiness in life. You may not have any privacy in your life because everybody always want to know what you're doing or where you go, etc. Some people want to have power. But please note that power may bring more enemies and intriques. At the end, it will not bring happiness. Unconciously, most people don't like others who have power. If your life is only aimed to have money, money, money..., it won't also be good. Money doesn't always bring happiness, either. Money can't buy love and happiness. Money is often the root of evil. Do you know Anna Nicole Smith? It is one example. I am so sad about her.

If there are only four of the questions to choose from, I would choose money. I wouldn't want fame because then all the people would be talking or gossiping about me, my life and stuff and I really enjoy privacy of my life. For success and power, they don't mean very much to me. I choose money because then I could utilize it to help other people, or do something I like or don't have chances to do before. I would be happy if I have enough money for me to go travel around the world *laughs*!
