    Most people busy with making money day after day, year after year. Some of them even forget what do they make money for. I know I need make money for my family. Because I want to make enough money to help my husband quit his job. Then he would not get injured from the job any more. I love him. I want him to enjoy the life as much as I do. But if he keep getting injury, he just simply can't.

    Is money really that important for me? Yes.

    Yes, it is extremely important to me.

    I'd like to stay where I am living, if not for money, I would be homeless.

    I'd like to eat food, because as a human being, I require food to live life, but requires money.

    I'd like to be able to drink something other than water, so that requires money.

    As you can see, there is a trend there. lol lol

    LIFE requires MONEY!

      Preech, brother, Preech!

      I also agree that money is very vital. I'm a Junior in high school right now with absolutely no sign in sight that I will be able to afford college. How will I change that? Money, that's how. And guess what I want to major in, business, yeah you read it right! Money is the key in this society to do whatever you want to do, therefore money is vital.

    Ahahahaha! *cracks knuckles*

    I put it to all of you that money is not neccessary in the slightest...How? I hear you ask. Let me elaborate;

    Money is not food, it does not feed you directly. If you really want food go out into the forest and find it - grow some or shoot some. Money does not pay for you to have a good time in your life. Think of all the times you have been truly happy and how many times money was the sole reason for said happiness. I'm going to do something I've never done before now and site South Park. They wrote a wonderful episode about how 'the economy' was angry and must be appeased; this is how I choose to see money, capitalism and the economy.

    My reasoning is straightforward. To live human beings need heat, light, food, water and shelter (they need other things too - like gravity for example, but lets not get too picky) does money 'do' any of these things? Does it shelter us? Or give off heat? Does it provide companionship? Sure you can 'buy' these things to a degree but does the money itself give you them? No. Money is a convention made by man. Bear with me a moment and take the time to imagine that money had never been invented. Think about how you would go about getting the things that you needed in order to live. Think how many jobs would become irrelevant - high end fashion designers would become cloth makers; lawyers wouldn't be around etc - then think how rich a fisherman would be; how well off a schoolteacher or a nurse...Money is an invention of man put in place for a variety of reasons - but mostly capitalism on the whole provides nothing more than a reward scheme so that we can feel that we are making progression within our lives.

    I'd love to say that it doesn't mean anything at all to me...but at the end of the day I still have to pay rent and bills just like everyone else does. I'm just hoping society will cotton on to the fact that poverty is futile and needless and change accordingly.

    Money is what we need to survive. We can manipulate some (ok larger)percentage of people in society using money.

    Money is not as important to me as it used to be. Unfortunately, I got myself into the situation where I need it pretty bad so I can get out from under my combination of bad decisions and bad luck.

    Money can bring great comfort in life. Most people want money more than anything until they develop a terminal health problem than they wish their money could buy back their health.

    Health is number one, family then money

    Money is very important!
    Because without money, nowadays, you don't get love and you don't get health.

    without money you can't raise your children.
    You can't get a place to live in.

    you can't buy  good health care.
    you can't get access to first class medicine.
    you can't buy your  medicines

    I need money to pay for food, shelter, and etcetera... The more money I have, the better food I can eat and medical treatment I can receive. Also the more money I have, the more I can donate to charity.

    Money is not important, only the things that it buys...I don't think it's necessary to become overly obsessed with making massive amounts of money, but I will personally always continue making what I need to pay bills and advance my goals.

    Money = Success. Money to me reflects the value of my time. of course it's not that simple though, a lot of other things come into it. But money makes me feel good.

    Money has become so imortant to our lives because of the commercialization of the world. Today we try to value almost everything in terms of money. Some people in our country say that money is god's brother.

    Nevertheless, you cannot get everything in our lives with money. Love is the best example. Without spending any money you might get it. But on the day when you lose your money, you might lose love too.

    Money as a necessary evil is here to stay.  I like money yet I despise money.  I have money yet I never have enough.  Those who do have enough don't like to share yet those who are poor give all they have to give.  It's not all about money, it's about life, love, giving and receiving - with our hearts, not our wallets.
