People have different views in life about money. Some want to have a luxurious life but some just want have a simple one. How about you? What's your opinion about this issue?

Money isn't everything in this world, and people who think so really don't understand life or true happiness. No, I don't want to be poor to the point of struggling, but if I have decent, nice, long lasting necessities. I'm okay with that.

We have the same insights RamdomnessPrincessx3. As long that I have a healthy and happy family and we can eat thrice a day that would be enough for me..

Anyone that actually wants to be poor , has been watching too movies that romanticize it or they've never been poor. I'd rather be rich.

Nobody wants to be poor, and if someone does, this person must be insane.Most people would be satisfied with average life, but since the middle class is melting like the spring snow, we become a two class society.It means that you can't be average.You are either rich or poor.Just like in Mexican soap operas.When you are forced to choose between these two classes, you would choose the rich class, wouldn't you?

If given a chance, then I want to be rich. I would be hypocrite if I say I want to be poor. Everyone wants to be rich and famous. Although I do value the simplicity of life. I would be a rich one with a humble heart. I would share my blessings and make the poor happy.

I prefer to be rich. A poor man has nothing in his life. He does not even get affection and respect from anybody. but the rich are respected by each and very person. But most important, money is security. Suppose you are very ill, you can get good medicine and treatment if you are rich. But suppose you are poor, you will not get even a single dose of medicine.

I WOULD LIKE TO BE A RICH PERSON. I think it's everyone's desire to be successful; and being one usually results to financial growth. It's nice to work hard to attain stability but then if I'd be given the chance to choose, i'd like to be born with a silver spoon.

Definitely to be rich! I have a lot of things needed and wanted. Most especially I have family and I want to have a big family with a lot of 6 (hopefully). A big house, a family car, a pool, a wide backyard. Its more of my lifestyle than just wanting to be rich. The amount of money can help me complete what I need to support my family. I can still live a simple life if I buy a lot of things that I need but not of luxury price. If I have a big family, so supply should be bigger too and money can be the only solution. Have a good day kijikiken! ;)

I just love my life as it is. So, I just want to be neither rich nor poor. Yes, I have too many problems. But still I don't think being rich or poor have to do anything with this. Even if it does i don't care. So, happy mylotting.

A lots of people believe that having lots of money and riches is the only way to gain happiness, money lots of money cant bring any one happiness. i thing happiness is to bring joy to some people, being by somebody. be it a friend or a good lover is all one may need, making a lots of time with whom who makes you happy,happiness in life is if support of yours family and yours loves one is always with you.it can make life easier. no matter what difficulties ll come to your way.

Everyone's goal in life is to get rich. We all study in the hope of getting rich one day. We might not say it directly but most of us want to be doctors or engineers which just mean higher income. Some people start a business and plan on expanding. Some of us might want to have a simple life but that just means a hassle free life with just about enough for our needs. It's different from being poor. Being poor means you will have difficulties for getting the things you've dreamt of or the things that you want to get for your family. So I might fail in getting rich but I certainly don't want to be poor!

To be a rich man is not a bad thing. I`d like to be a rich man, for I would have a lot of options to my life. Don`t worry about the bread and milk, I would have plenty of time to do what I want,e.g. giving material assistant to the poor, and to be a man I really want to be. the main point is that you should know how to manage the money instead of ruining yourself.

I want to be extremely rich like the song sang by Bruno Mars "I wanna be a Billionaire". Life will definitely be different from my current lifestyle. With plenty of money for me at disposal I can help many people who are in need. I wanna be rich spiritually and emotionally too. I believe I can achieve more if I have abundant of money. We have a choice, choose rich in order to be pro active to help others. Just my opinion and hope I will be extremely rich one day soon.
