    What are your thoughts on this...


      Money doesn't make the world go 'round. Change does.


    Just wondering...

    Thanks.

      Being poor is no disgrace, but it is an inconvenience!

      It's a nice thought. Unfortunately, most change requires money.

      I agree, gramarye. Money does have perks! smile

      Andraste, I don't know about that. I guess it would depend on the type of change.

    My thoughts were summed up by a comment made by a speaker at a sales seminar some decades back--probably not original, but certainly on target.  He stated,

    "There are problems that go with being poor, and there are problems that go with being rich.  I like the problems that go with being rich better."

      Agreed Ghost. Which colour is my new Porche gonna be, is not the same magnitude of problem that "what the hell are we gonna eat this week" is! smile
      How is the building going Ghost? smile

      Ghost, that speaker made sense! I'd rather have the problems that go along with being rich, too!

      earnestshub, I'd rather decide on the color of my new Porche... smile

    Unfortunately, in our world today it is difficult to effect change if you don't have access to money.

    Waxing lyrical about money can be fun - but the tax office doesn't accept poetry!  smile

    I think this may sound a little better...

      Dollars don't make the world go 'round, change does.

    money talks but does it tell the truth ?

      I think that it could tell a few whoppers... depending on who's pulling the money's puppet strings....

    Wisdom, knowledge and true change come at the price of patience.  Money can make quick changes, but deeper change and change without monetary price takes place over time.  It takes place when one takes personal initiative to start treating their neighbor with respect and love.  It takes place when one reaches out more often to shake someone's hand.  It takes place when a father takes the time to listen to his child.  It takes place when one chooses to be honest with his fellow man.  That is how we will change the world.

    Money may bring change but is the change an honest improvement?
