how will you describe life? do u think that money alone can make u happy? Do you think if you have the 6 digit of your bank account you are ready to die..? Or do you think that once you acquire everything you want in life you will get fullfilled? do you think that lossing your own soul but gaining the whole world is what life means to be?

Money certainly makes life easier. But I believe that money can't buy happiness, even though it can divert sadness. For me it is important to live a life I can be proud of. To be successful, to do good things, be a good friend, a good wife, a good daughter. I don't have a list of things I need to achieve before I die, but I want to take as much happiness as I can. I think that's a good goal, don't you?

hi jcmile. i do not think money means life. what is money? money is a way of making living, we need to live in this world, so we need money to support our life. but money is not everything. think about how do you live without family and close friends just money? i do not like the life without familiy and friends although i am very rich to buy many things.

Life to me is like a stream, in which we are but a twig tossing about, the bulk of the water flows by and only a little bit is caught by us.Money is nothing but a means , it is not an end. Happiness is what we strive for and occasionally get a dose of. Very few people are there whose wishes are fulfilled, most of us wish for a fraction of our demands to be satisfied and we are happy if they are. If you lose your soul there is nothing to live for therefore the question of gaining all earthly pleasures is meaningless.

Life is a period of time. And doing things you don't like or having things you don't want is a waste of time. That is my philosophy. But it's also about having a clean conscience. So the best way to enjoy life is make it about things and people you like and do it right and lawfully. Don't settle for things. Do everything to the best of your ability and do it with a good attitude!
