    If you were offered the choice - riches, or a good life (unknown form) which one would you accept?

    The "good life" may virtually take the form as  that of a peasant... or a life  working with lepers.. maybe lifelong employment involving child cancer patients, or maybe even inhabiting the body of an alternate and diametrically opposed religious believer ...

    I already have a good life..I'd probably choose riches..

    But if it was a matter of only having one or the other, then I'd choose a good life..maybe riches would come with a good life..heh..

    As long as I had a good life, I wouldn't care if  I were rich. Rich people can be unhappy too. I'd choose the happy life.

    A good life or riches? Well, rather a good life without riches than a bad one with - as long as the good life was my idea of a 'good life'.

    I would take the good life being rich in money power and belongings is incredably lonly and over rated i would rather have nothing and be content than have everything i want and be misserable balance is esstianal in finding happiness you dont have to have money or power to be rich in love is better than to be rich in filth and greed.
