In the poor days, when I was a boy I always dream I would have enough money that I can never use up. So I can buy whatever i want and have a happy life like immortal. But also like the money, this dream can never come ture. :) As I grow up, I come to understand that there is always some money you cann't earn, I mean you cann't earn every dollar all over the world, even the world's richest person--Bill Gates can not. In our lifetime, there is something more important than making money. Yeah, I concede that we should try our best to strive, to struggle, to earn money and make life more easier and comfortable. But this can never be done through sacrificing our lives, and we can never chase the wealth unscrupulously neither. I think even a poor life is more comfortable than a rich but risky one. In fact no matter poor or rich, a life is a life. And it is fair that every person only has one life and one time. There is no distinction in life between poor and rich, you are still nothing when you leave the world, just like the time when you are born. In my opinion, enjoying the life is the truth, so you can have a meaningful experience. :) Do you concur? And tell me your view about this.

Health, not being alone and being happy are more important. Money is just a mean to get stuff and experiences, not the end or the experience itself for me. I know not everyone feels this way, but there is really no point in having all the money in the world if you do not know what to use it for, or have anyone to share it with, if you ask me!

As far as I am concerned, I think the most important than to make oney is to have a good quality to do the things that are interesting to do and willingly to do.I agree with you that the most important part to do is to enjoy life to the fullest as we want.

More than money I always its important to achieve a task or goal in your life. I always like to achieve something and then money comes from it.Yes life is not all about money.One should be self sufficient and always should look for the satisfaction in life. Money without satisfaction is of no use.So try to satisfy yourself.

the system of living in a country operated by money is what makes it an important thing. people are left with no choice but to think highly of it since it can buy you your basic needs including food and shelter. here in the philippines, even a quality education requires ample amount of money. sometimes being happy needs money too. although i don't and had never considered making money as my priority in life, i realized i need it to survive. being of help to other people had always been fulfilling for me, but since a lot can do volunteer works and only a few can donate to keep any foundations running, i feel like wanting to become rich someday so that i can support them financially. to get back to my family who had been very supportive of me, i also need money. making people around you happy would need spending too some of the times. in other words, to get full experience of the most important things in my life, i need to make money and earn a living. I CAN THINK money is not that important to me all the time (in fact, I DO THINK like that), but at the end of the day i'd still find ways to make money.

Hi, there. I'd like to say, for me, good health and happiness are more important than money, but on the other hand, I consider money as the guarantee for good health and a happy life to a large extent. Making money for a good life makes money important, the reality speaks itself. And I want to live a good life... Happy myLotting!

one thing you need to consider in making money is the reason WHY you need to make money, is it for you to live a wealthy life, to gain powers or is it for your family. if you ask me what is more important than making money my answer is making history,

Many are thinking money power brings everything in life but it never brings happiness in life.Because of some greedy people only the value of money is given much more importance.Poor rickshaw puller gets sound sleep even on the road but a rich one do not get sleep even under the air-conditioned room. Rich or poor one should live contended life.

happiness and my health are much more important for me than making money... what is the point of having lots of money if you can't enjoy it??? as you say, you only live once and you come into this world with nothing, you leave this world with nothing as well... so what is the use of trying so hard to earn money??? at the end, you still can't bring it with you when you die and other people get to enjoy it... this is what i think... take care and have a nice day...

While it is true that some people seee making money as the most important thing in life, I don't. To me the important things are having family that I love and care for and to have the best job in the world. I work as a nurse I sometimes see people on the worst days of their lives and you realise, at those moments, that money isn't important. To me, caring for people and helping them when they are ill is important. To see someone come in critically ill and see them leave in good health is worth more to me than all the money in the world.
