Some people are so poor that the only thing they have is money.

This saying seems to be stalking me the past month. I've been seeing it online in many websites I visit. Even paulo coelho said it. I'm not sure who said it for the first time, but I find it to contain a lot of truth and wisdom. Of course, if you have money AND friends, love, health, nothing can beat that. But in a situation where it's a person alone with his money, and no friends, pride, love and honour I believe this saying is totally correct.

How sad but rich. LOL But when you have money can't you buy the world? Go to different places and treat all the people there and eventually you will get some friends?

I've got to say you have a rather interesting point of view. I guess if you do have the will to use your money for a good cause, then money is not the only thing that you have. you also have other virtues like kindness, compassion, understanding, etc. Now that I think of it again, I guess the saying only applies on miserous, corrupted andcrooked rich people.:P

I believe every person should live the life how they want to. If people with money and no friends are happy with their situation is their choice. If people with money want friends I'm sure they are capable of makeing some changes in their behaviour and find friends. There are also poor people who doesn't have friends, love or health and is even worst that way...

Your opinion is interesting and very right I must say. If someone is happy the way things are, then it doesn't matter. And if someone doesn't have either money or any other virtues, then I feel sorry for them. :( In order to come to a point like this you must make a lot of bad choices in your life, you cannot blame it solely on bad luck.

I'm agree with this and I can say that I'm not poor. My money was on my first plan but it isn't like that anymore. There is many things which I can remind. Friends, family, places and a lot of things which are my treasure.
