Most of us believe that money isn't everything in this world. But if you have money, you gain power, becomes influential, you could have lots of friends and in some point can control the lives of others. in a simple word, money gives you power that a penniless man don't have. I still believe that money cant give me the all the happiness I want, but why having money has too many edge than someone who don't have it? Is this a reality that bites?

Money is power in some circumstances but not all. One cannot find a good, honest, dependable or dedicated spouse iwth money. If you find a spouse with money then chances are it is not real. Love is special and true love is worth so much more than money. It can comfort you went the world is cruel. True love can comfort you when you lose someone you love to cancer. True love can make the rainy days feel sunny. Money cannot do that. So money is not power when it comes to Love and Peace

Money sure isn't the answer to love and happiness, but boy it sure helps. I know my husband and I work our fingers to the bone trying to survive. It takes everything we make to keep the bills paid and put meals on the table etc. We are trying to save up enough now with extra he makes from work and what I earn online to buy the extras we are watning to get. It sure isn't easy but every little bit helps.

I agree that some points, money is power can buy anything, but not from our heart. If people have money, they have more respectful than the other in the capitalism. If people are poor, they are afraid to contact business with those people. With money, people are easy for living in luxury, and have things convenient. But some poor people don't have much money, they live to help other people, they know a lot of people, they meet true heart people.

Money is power, well I thought before that "knowledge is power", I agree with you, now I seem to believe that "money is power", if you have money you can do whatever you want. Why are we studying? Answer: to get a good paying job someday. Money, money, money, it is always about money.

I guess with most of us, its the case of wanting what we dont have. Man is like that. Never satisfied with what he has. Man always thinks that grass is greener on the other side. However i would like to have money but i definetely dont want power or fame. Money is good enough for me. But i do know htat money cannot buy happiness or true love. All that has to come from within oneself.

Offcourse money is the power. but not enough. Love is the power. Money only can meet other demand. But it can not meet the demand of heart. Only love can do it.
