Money is neither good nor bad but is a tool which can be used for good or bad purposes or goals. WHAT you use the money for is an indication of what you VALUE in life or what seems to be more important to you at a given point in time.

Money: n. a physical symbol for a quantity of energy and/or matter which can be traded for information and/or goods and/or services and is used as a measure of information and/or goods and/or services values in the market

Money symbolically represents energy and stored energy (matter) which is something which everyone needs to survive. Even those without money need the energy stored in food to survive so everyone needs some money to buy food unless they are begging for food, living off of dumpster food, or getting money from food stamps or welfare.

If you love or enjoy writing then it will take little energy or money to do so but if you want to make money writing then you will still need money to promote the writing or you will have to achieve celebrity status and then write something which will appeal to and which you can sell to your fans.

Energy makes the world go round and that is why it is popular to say that money makes the world go round. You can still be happy with very little money if you budget it and spend it wisely but if you want to spend an active life doing interesting things and associating with interesting humans whom you care about then you will need more than a minimum amount of money.

A good paying job is the answer to living a varied interesting life with offspring if you choose to have any.

Yes, loving money too much will probably corrupt you and mismanaging what little money you have will bring you much pain and suffering but most of us need money or energy to survive well. It is important to learn to save some of it and use or spend it wisely on the things which will give you the most pleasure or happiness in the long duration.  

You may want to live impulsively day by day spending money on immediate needs and wants but to maximize your happiness throughout a lifetime you will need to learn to save for and spend your money on short duration as well as long duration goals.


Money is a basic necessity for most of us and it should be regarded as a precious commodity not to be wasted but wisely budgeted and spent on worthwhile goals in life which will hopefully maximize your happiness during a lifetime.

The fool and his money are soon parted so try not to live the life of a fool for an entire lifetime!!!!!!
