  1. nice quotes again:) in relation to number 5 though I like the idea that money only enhances who you already are. if you’re charitable and caring, money will only make you more charitable and caring. if you’re unhappy, money will only enhance your unhappiness. I like to avoid both extremes on this topic that money is evil, or that money is good. it’s a blend. it’s not always demoralizing in my opinion. like I wrote in my post once, money in itself will not lead to happiness, but when used correctly, money can increase happiness. many scientists and psychologists would agree with that

    1. Hi Vincent, I agree extremes are not the best. Sophocles Died in 460 BC – the quote is old. I like it for the simple reason that I have seen how money can corrupt people and it does. In society we strong character and not so strong character. Strong character and balanced characters generally wont be swayed by money.. I remember you post on money it was great.

    I like the particular quote, thanks for sharing. It brings out the true meaning of being selfless and being un-bias towards a common good for many
