What do you prefer have a lots of money but you have a disease thats no cure OR having small money (just enough for daily basics needs oly) but have a very good health? Well me i would rather choose the good health but only have enough money because if i have a lots of money how can i use it when im going to die. Well life is to short and money is not everything and cant buy happiness. I would rather be poor and enjoys life's gives me rather than lying in a bed of money but i cant enjoy it. What about you what would you choose? and why? thanks happy mylotting!

dear cheenlly, Health is weath. We should have good health. Money is only a raw material for human life. Due to short of raw material we can lead a happy life but without a good health, even if you have lot of money, you cannot lead a happy life. Every human being knows the fact that good health is required but many people negleleting the health for making money. They squander the health for wealth and get to good health they end in grave.

M oney isn't everything. We only have one body in order to enjoy it, we must take care of it. Money doens't go very far when you spend it all on health care and doctors visits.

I would certainly choose health over wealth. I have heard of a maxim "Health is wealth." but not the reverse. Hahah. To be healthy would mean I can do more things like working and earning money. With wealth but no health, I will probably be staying at home and not doing anything productive. Oh! How I dread this day if this happens to me. Conclusion : Health is worth celebrating for but not wealth. Then again, don't get me wrong that wealth is not a good thing. It is just that health is better. Cheers!

Beeing in the situation at the moment where the finances are not good and neither is the health, I can honestly say that health is more important. To worry about money is NOTHING compared to worrying if you are going to die or not. I would prefer health any day!

I would choose the good health. Why have lots of money if you aren't able to enjoy it because of failing health. The money would only go to pay all of the built up medical bills, and that's no fun at all.

If you’re statement is a ‘disease with no cure’ – of course I’d rather choose good health with enough money. My father says, money is not important as long as you’re happy and able to go on with your life without any illness. But on the other hand, if you’re wealthy and have disease that’s not curable, then that’s a good thing to start being Good Samaritan. Make a donation, start a foundation, help others that need financial support, join community group that may help you know the purpose of life – you know something like that. If you’re in that situation, I’m sure there’s something for you up there.

Disease with no cure but if I could still walk and stuff, I would choose having lots of money. Maybe I am currently very broke right now and money is just what I would love to have *laughs*. I would enjoy my life having that much money at least for a little bit and then when I die, I would donate every penny of it to the needy. I think that's good enough *smiles*.
