Found this and it made me think
It's the opposite, being rich is the root of all evil. Money is Power. People are greedy, people abuse power for personal gain.
Then give me all your money, dont be evil
Not quite. The original saying is that the "love" of money is the root of "all kinds of" evil.
Being rich does not mean you "love" money. The kind of love the original quote is talking about is saying that to be "obsessed" or "addicted" to money leads to "evil" or bad things.
I don't love money, but I love the kind of life that it can provide
I would say "The lack of money is they root of evil" because when you lack money you would do anything to get it.
I would prefer to say money CAN be the root of all evil. Depends on the person holding the bank account.
I have no money compared to most people here, but what I lack in cash I have in friends and family. When all goes tits up, friends and family will always be there.
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.
1 Timothy 6:10
This. If I didn't have problems with money I wouldn't have attempted suicide and other questionable activities.
MONEY is the root of all EVIL.
Well I'm sure you know your own situation better than I know it - but that said who knows? Plenty of wealthy people commit suicide and many extremely impoverished people are happy. And you can never know what would have happened if your life took a different course.
Money and wealth has a sort of taboo around it (at least in Western societies) I think: people won't admit to others or even themselves that it's a driving factor for them but rather it's "unimportant" and so on. This despite the fact that most people spend more time amassing money than anything else they do in their lifetime. One of the great "unmentionables".
Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and you're okay
Money, it's a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I'll buy me a football team
Money get back
I'm alright, Jack, keep your hands off my stack.
Money it's a hit
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit
I'm in the hi-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet
Money it's a crime
Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie
Money so they say
Is the root of all evil today
But if you ask for a rise it's no surprise that they're giving none away
Evil people are the root of evil.
I think it's proper use of money what is more important than lack or surplus of money.
But there money is the thing that is causing you to be evil. If there was nothing called money then you wouldn't do "anything to get it". So money is what is making you do "anything to get it". Money is the cause.
Gingers are root of evil
Exactly, Money is just a device or tool used by good and evil. Does not matter how much you have.
Your problems in relation to money is what caused you to do this bad stuff, so can you not see that is still money causing problems. Does not matter if you are rich or poor it depends on the type of person you are we should be thankful we have access to knowledge on BHW or even a computer compared to so many other people.
Money is just a resource, how you use it is what matters. We could wipe out world hunger by cutting a defense budget in half. In my experience with wealthy people, they are no different or more evil than poor people. In both groups some are generous and caring, some not.
What about this?
How can one be happy without money if he craves all the things that require to be paid for.
Or what good is millions of dollars if you're on an island without any food and no way out?
Imagine a society where everybody's equal. People making stuff for others, sharing everything they have. This way everybody would have what they need plus more. But the reality is little different. One takes from another, that way first one loses and the other is temporarily satisfied and left with a desire to take even more.
Helping and sharing is good. Getting paid for doing it this way is good.
