I once knew a guy who was so poor all he had was money.
Because in the end, you finally learn that the few things you were truly searching for all along -- what are most important in the world -- couldn't be obtained by money. These things might actually be what you already have right now but have ignored and taken for granted.
Money can be an obstacle and a blinder.
Money hinders and wastes human talent that can more benefit the world.
Money is often the enemy of kindness and compassion because it is a product of greed, pettiness, and selfishness.
Yet for now, modern society needs money because it has this irrational need to keep score. You don't keep score on people you like or love. It hasn't fully learned the lesson that taking care of others isn't to keep score but is one of the few noble and worthwhile things to do in the short time we are here. ☮❤
