Isn't it interesting that those who pontificate that "Money is not everything" usually have money?

Be broke for a few weeks unable to pay your bills, pay rent and afford basic necessities, and then let's see if you'd still hold the same position about money.

Let us be sincere and stop fooling around; MONEY IS SOMETHING! A very huge something!! At least in this present world. Might not be a big deal in another world. But in this world? Save me the sermon.

Without money in this world, rarely does anything get done. In fact, many things suffer needlessly without money. Even the Bible is flat-out frank enough to recognize the fact that money answers all things in the context of this present world. It doesn't say money is "the answer to all things" but it answers all things.

So please, before you sermonize me that money is not everything or that money is no big deal, credit my blockchain address with one thousand units of Bitcoin and forget about it. Then I'd believe you. In fact, I'd sing it along with you...money ain't nothing!

-
I'd sing it along with you...money ain't nothing!
Steve Jobs' last words;

“I  reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer …

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth

Blah..Blah..Blah"


Bad news, it was just a hoax. But only them who acquired the most have the ability to say it!
Source

Only the poor will understand this song.

"If I hadn't seen such riches
I could live with being poor"


Sit Down by James.

Not always. I think a lot of people who say this actually don't have much money. After all, what good is money if you're miserable? Money can't buy you happiness and most people know that with or without having much themselves, but it does often make your life more comfortable.

Be broke for a few weeks unable to pay your bills, pay rent and afford basic necessities, and then let's see if you'd still hold the same position about money.

So if you had enough money for those things you'd be truly happy? If money is the only thing that is stopping you from happiness then all you need to do is find a job. Lucky you.

Let us be sincere and stop fooling around; MONEY IS SOMETHING! A very huge something!! At least in this present world. Might not be a big deal in another world. But in this world? Save me the sermon.

Nobody is saying money is nothing. It is something. It's just not everything. I would rather have my health than a million in my bank. Money cannot buy you your health.

So please, before you sermonize me that money is not everything or that money is no big deal, credit my blockchain address with one thousand units of Bitcoin and forget about it. Then I'd believe you. In fact, I'd sing it along with you...money ain't nothing!

Why don't you earn it? You can still be of the opinion that money isn't everything but not want to give it away to prove a point. Some people work very hard for their money and know the value of it.

In my opinion, money is something that to provides the needs of our family. Life is more comfortable if we can buy what we need to. We are very thankful in bitcoin because we can earn extra income. It is in our hands on how to spend money.

wow, i think op has a lot of things going on, blunt but true though, i feel you, having money today is so very important, if a person has no money, he is good as a dead man, but let us be frank too, having money is not evil, we are breathing, we need to eat, we need clothes and shelter in order to survive but men are evil themselves if they are not contented with all his money in banks and still want to earn more by fooling or stepping into others. having money and greed for money is different from one another.

Yes, money is something but you don't have to be enslaved by it. Other's work very hard but earn little, while others became successful. So its important in life that you have money, specially at the current global situations, without money, you will be nothing, suffering will be your everyday companion and it doesn't feel good.

I'm not 100% certain on the psychology of money. It is possible those with money say: "time is money" while those who lack prefer: "money isn't everything". When consumers can't afford things they might counsel themselves by saying: "money isn't everything". As if to declare they benefit on a non material level by lacking the funds necessary to afford things.

A long time ago, I read a book written by Robert Kiyosaki where he discusses these topics. The relationship between things people say and how it affects their psychology and attitude about money. Which in turn affects their potential for generating income and being successful on a financial, investment or business perspective.

I think money can represent a metric for measuring time, space, productivity and other intangibles. The more money a person has the more time they have, the farther they can travel and they can achieve a greater amount of work(productivity). Money is little different from a wrench or a pair of scissors. Its a tool utilized by higher primates.

Where things might get a bit weird is when people begin to worship it. Where money defines a persons entire existence: their values, mentality and worldview. To a point where people are willing to do and say anything, compromise every aspect of themselves and their lives to get it. Maybe money can represent a trap in that regard.

Without money, of course, very bad.Without them nothing can be done I agree with You.Money in our time still solve a lot of problems.If you have money then at least you have a good education,the opportunity to travel to different countries and most importantly you are not hungry.Unfortunately in our twenty-first century there are still ,,starvation deaths,and I believe this is unacceptable.

At the end of the day, rich people can also say that "money is not everything" especially if they obtained their riches by trampling others(for example a corrupt politician or a drug lord who is not happy with their life).

While I do disagree with Hydrogen's point at some degree, I can at least say that those who are poor also console themselves by saying the same thing thus making everyone able to pontificate that statement.

Those people who said that money is not everything are spiritual people. They claim that it is not everything because sometimes money cannot heal you from a fatal disease. Therefore, health is what matters most. I would say that money is everything and not everything at the same time. Money can buy you whatever you need in your life. But it cannot prevent you from death or catching a terminal disease. Everyone has their own perspective. You think money is everything, while people think otherwise.

The quest for money has become a very serious issue everybody looks after. In this era, if you have no money to live with, life becomes somehow for you to cope with.

Only the rich can relate to the expression 'Money can't buy everything' but to us, the middle class, the bourgeoisie, the slaves of the corporate world or whatever it is, money is a huge help to our needs and growing pains. Rich people's problems are limited to the non-material things while the poor and the middle-class is mainly centered around money. The fine line between rich and poor is ever so growing, and the rich still has the audacity to 'motivate' people by these 'powerful words' that are keys to success.

People in this time need money more than ever, as more and more capitalists are banding together to make more money while the rest of the world are left behind. Money might not save you from death, buy you unconditional love or save you from depression, but at least money will help you live a decent life while you're at it.

if money is not everything, then why do we work to earn a living? at least, we would have been spending more time doing what we classify as ''everything'' rather than working. the fact is, money is everything, nothing that can be done without money.

Good point, looks like money is at least some sort of a gateway to happiness. Although it can never replace loved ones, like family.

It is impossible to live without money if you live in a society where everything depends on money. We need to pay for everything what is necessary for life and that include food, water, electric energy, health care and many other things. If you have no money to pay for all that you will have terribly hard life probably on the street. Only way that the money does not play a major role in our life is to try move out from civilization and live life by the nature and from the nature.

But even in such case money can not be completely expelled from the equation of life, humans are just create such a society in which we depend on money. Problem is that some let's say 5% of human population hold 90% of world wealth, they have so much money that at one point it becomes a trivial thing for them.

Without money in this world, rarely does anything get done. In fact, many things suffer needlessly without money.
Truth to this is that money can prolong health or sustain it until it is time for death to come.

Even the Bible is flat-out frank enough to recognize the fact that money answers all things in the context of this present world. It doesn't say money is "the answer to all things" but it answers all things.

I hope you have also read a portion of the bible where it says that, the love of money is the root of all evil?

Surely, money is very good but we have to be moderate in our chase for money.

very difficult perception. lots of opinions, and that's the right of every human being to comment. we don't need to argue with this reality.money is important, we live with money.
but on the other hand there are still more important things, and this is a fact that all must be balanced. money, love, nature, god and people. without this balance all I'm sure there is happiness ...
hopefully our day is always fun ... Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

The current situations encourage us to life with money and impossible to life without it because money is the most important element if we want to life but probably money is not everything could be different meaning that people who says that maybe means they have money and they are willing to spend a lot of money to buy happiness because to get happiness in this world sometimes money cannot buy it

Yes I agree. As long as you alive, the money will always matter. You can't deny it! Don't be hypocrite, let's be honest that without money, you can't live. In fact the money nowadays is equal to power.
