In this society, people is becoming more and more materialistic. Do you think money is really that important... so much important that you would trade anything else for it? I think heath is much more important than wealth. Without good health, you won't be happy even though you have billions of dollars in your pocket. Do take good care of your health and wealth will come after that Have a good day!

I like wealth. I don't mind dying early all that much. As long as I get to spend my years comfortably and even more. I grew up with rock n roll lol. I do see your point though, and everyone else that agrees with you. It's just a matter of priority I guess. Good day!

I would definitely choose health over wealth without second thoughts.., Come to think of it.., what's the sense of being wealthy and afford every material thing and luxury you can ever imagine but your health is declining? and what if your ill and the chances of getting a cure is too thin.., yet you are wealthy.. Do you think you can still get to enjoy life the normal way if you are terminally ill..,? No, you cannot.., and even if you can afford all the best medications.., physicians and all the necessary treatment.., if the prognosis of your health condition is poor.., money is useless..=) so i wouldn't mind if my i'm not lying on a bed of money as long as body is healthy..=)

Hi there! I agree with you, for me, health is much important than wealth as well. Even if you're rich but your health is poor, you will never be happy too because its hard to enjoy one's self when you're not feeling good. Medications nowadays is too expensive, you feel pain, you feel weak, and your pocket will hurt also when you have a disease so id rather choose the healthy well being, though im not rich. There's something more than being healthy, and being wealthy for me doesn't only mean material things there's more important things that money can't buy, and that's love, happiness and contentment. Have a lovely day ahead!

Having suffered from some strange illness a few years ago, I'd choose Health first. Money loses its meaning when we get so sick. Of course, we need it to buy our daily needs, pay for our major bills or go places that we want to visit but health is much much more important. Having just enough money while enjoying life healthily is good enough for me.

Of course,I choose wealth and the wealth of health.People do not have a healthy body how can it create wealth.No life,and who will feel bad of money.Money is worldly possessions,health is not already naked.It is only a tool to maintain good health is important.

You are so right. What good is all the money in the world if your too sick to enjoy it? Some people will risk life and limb for the almighty dollar. For me, right now i concentrate more on health since the years are beginning to catch up to me.

There is a popular proverbs that says God gives great wealth and honor to some and gives them everything they could ever want, but then he doesn't give them the health to enjoy it. They die, and others get it all. I desire wealth and good health at the same time. Too much desire for wealth is bad for the health.

The way I look at is that if I have my health, I can pursue wealth if I want to. If I have wealth, I may or may not be able to pursue health...even getting the best care is no assurance if you have something incurable. So I have to choose health over wealth.

Health! If I were super healthy, then the wealth will be sure to follow. I cannot work if I am not healthy, so I would rather be healthy.

I would take good health any day over wealth. Just to be able to wake up feeling good is a blessing. If you are strong and healthy, you came earn wealth, or get wealth. I have found that peace of mind is the best thing ever.

In my opinion, health is more valuable than wealth. If you have a good health, you could create a great wealth. A good health always brings happiness. When we are quite fit, strong and healthy, we feel our mind becomes lucid and clear and we think noble things. If we don't have a good health, we are not able to overcome serious difficulties in our life. Therefore, good health is necessary to happiness and success.

Money is important, no doubt about that. But if I were to choose between wealth or health, I'd rather choose health because no matter how rich you are, no matter how much you'd pay for hospitalization bills and whatsoever just to cure whatever your sickness is, its not an assurance that you'd survive. So I choose health because even if I may not have all the richness in the world, as long as I'm healthy, there's a huge chance that I could succeed in life, live long and be happy with the ones I love. Thanks for sharing by the way. Best of luck

I agree, money is not really everything, though it does contribute a lot to making life more comfortable and luxurious. But without health, we don't have the opportunity to enjoy our wealth at all. Like, we can't go to different places, try new things, spend time with friends and other stuffs. And of course, if you are not healthy, then you would probably have to spend most of your time at home or at the hospital, that is no fun at all.

I agree with you. Any wealth in the world can't buy you health, while you can work hard and make some wealth if you are healthy and can work hard, so health is far more important for this purpose too!

Health is wealth states the old saying. Indeed, a proper well-being is one of the most precious possessions we can have in this world. It is a treasure we should always remember to protect and take good care of. There’s no argument here and I know you fully understand my point. In fact, even plain common sense would rightly agree. Health, in my opinion, is more valuable than wealth which is only the aftermath of the former. In conclusion, we should feel no excessive greediness and enthusiasm for wealth but should always maintain good health which is the most valuable thing in life. Have a nice day!

Wealth and Health are always together. The Wealth is good, the Health is good too. And contrary too. So, I think that we should improve The Wealth and Health together.

I totally I agree with you that Health is more important than wealth because money will be gone easily if there is no good health. How can one work and become wealthy if he or she is always sick? If the person is making a lot of money but it is spend to medications all the time, money will be exhausted. So I would say that health is wealth.
