Money is important to me, it makes the world go round. We can do a lot of wonders with money like helping others, charity, donation and even improve or change other lives. On the other hand, money can also lead to many evil deeds like stealing, robbing and killing. There is a saying :"we can live with money, but we cannot live without money" To me, it is critical for us to understand the real value of money and not be a slave to MONEY. What is your value of Money?

Yes, money is important! Money is just a means to an end. Like a knife, it can be used for good or evil. Money must always be your servant, you must not be a slave to money. Money is also a form of energy. As a wise man once said: "Money is like a woman! If you say you do not like her, she will go away!"

My friend, your comment is always wise and inspiring ! I like money and like the ways money works for me. The end which money creates is of more interest to me. Money is the natural manifestations of universe. Then again, I like your prosperous name and I believed many others as well.

I agree with you that life is more important. Without our lives, there is nothing more we can do. The next question perhaps is when we have our life, what do we do about it? Do we spend a lot of our time making money? or there are also other activities in our life? How do we make full use of our life? When I ask these questions, I am also directing the questions at myself. Let's learn and grow together :-)

Yes! never be a slave to money. When one becomes a slave, one will lose all the quality of good human. Greed takes over. Money is important as long as you are the master. Just as the saying goes "Fire is a good servant but a bad master"

Very Good! Many people know about it but sometimes we may not be able to do it. It really calls for a lot of mastery of oneself. When i look at extremely rich people, I salute them for their mastery over money.
