If you had all the money that you ever wanted in the world.....would you still want more?
Can I have all the women I ever wanted instead?
I don't need money for happiness - I want good health, love, enough food and water to keep me alive and healthy, a home to keep me warm......
.....and all the free gadgets I can get!
i wouldn't know and i doubt anyone else knows how they would react. we can say we would or wouldn't want more but in all honesty, we have no idea.
Wait. How could you want more when you already have all you want?
Aside from gluttony and greed, this doesn't make any sense to me at all.
Additionally, those who would want more for the purpose of "helping" others is usually about their need for control and power.
I would want to give away money to those in need. I would want to have enough to make sure that everyone has food, clothing, shelter and basic necessities.
I could be OK with not getting more (if I already had all the money I needed/wanted), but I wouldn't turn it away either. People who have more money than they need can do a lot of good for other people. Besides, having something to leave to one's kids, grandchildren, causes, etc. is a nice thing. Better it go to me than to someone who'd buy a $3000 shower curtain or have their walls and ceilings done in gold (or something like that). (I've got my plans for starting up a certain type of school(s), and a number of services and/or facilities for elderly people, all ready for if/when my "all-the-money-I-could-possibly-want-or-need" ship comes in. I also have a list of other causes all ready for "if/when". So again, better me than a $3000-shower-curtain type of person.)
I think having too much money would be a worry for me. Having billions would be a huge responsibility and I would always be fearful that I would lose it. I would however like to have enough money to live comfortably, without worry about having the heating on in the winter or having to eat baked potatoes every day, because they are inexpensive. In my neighbourhood, about 12 years ago, a man won 11 million on the lottery, and moved to a much better area, but spent a lot on alcohol, and was dead within a year as a result. Going from having nothing to having everything can prove too much for some people.
Seems like that the older I get, the less money it would take to make me happy.
Money itself doesn't make me happy...and yes, too much can cause many problems, especially those who want to kill you to get it!
I would be satisfied with $1,000,000 bucks. I would retire and enjoy life (and live frugally of course!).
I dont even need all the money I ever wanted. At this point, just enjoying life with the means to do it will be fine thanks.....

I am suddenly very depressed. All I want to do is eat and watch t.v. I am struggling to make myself write anything, and haven't been writing much at all. I don't want to research anything, or look through adwords to get good keywords. I just want to hide.I have tried, through my whole divorce...

How Much Money is Enough Money?Billionaires like Donald Sterling have enough money to support endless generations, so why do they need more? Do you think there should be a limit to how much money you have? Should Billionaires be taxed more? Is there any amount that would be enough?
