“A million dollars sounds like a lot, I know. Especially when you’re young. But you can’t let money erode your principles or you’ll wind up with nothing.”
Sammy Keyes And The Dead Giveaway by Wendelin Van Draanen
Money is important to survive and to live a comfortable life, but it is not all there is. People become too focussed and too wrapped up in the idea of having money, lots of it, that they change. We let this man-made concept, bills and coins with assigned worth, control our lives. We let it determine how we feel about ourselves and how we treat others depending on how much money they have. We judge everyone on their net worth. There is much more to life, and the sooner people realize that people should become before money the better off we would all be.
