Is money everything?

Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.
-Benjamin Franklin

We live in the world where money has got more importance than humanity. It has become an inevitable part of life. From buying a house to car or for enjoyment, money is needed everywhere. People are of the opinion that their life is extravagant if they fail to earn loads of money. Well, in a way its true. How will you derive pleasure of all the luxuries of life if you don’t have enough cash? How will you buy those top notch brands if you earn meagre? But the question remains, Is money everything?

With money you can buy a luxurious house but not a home. Home is where your family resides and not where the bundles of notes are. With money you can buy a rolex but you can’t buy time. Money will help you buy a bed, but not sleep. For a peaceful sleep you need to have the affection of your dear ones. Money can fetch you books, but not knowledge. With money you can buy a good doctor but not good health. Money will give you desired position in society but not respect. You have to earn respect!

Its true we slog for money our entire life. Nobody will like to spend half their day in office simply for pleasure. Money has been and will always remain an important aspect of ones’ life. It definitely doesn’t give us all the happiness and peace in life but it surely give us a sense of security. We have that satisfaction that our bank balance is not empty.

But one thing we have to realise is that while making money we should not ignore small important aspects of life. We should learn to spend quality time with our dear ones as they are the one who will give you solace in the hour of need. Earn enough money to live a good life but earn good friends and respect too!
