    Default Money is the root of all happiness

    HI Guys. Suddenly I remember a facebook post by a 3D artist in our country.
    So I wanted to share this with you to see how people around the world think about this.

    Do you agree that the money is the root of all happiness?

    If yes then write Y and tell me why if you want to justify yourself a little.
    If No then write N and tell me why if you want to justify yourself a little.

    Since there is no option this forum to open a pole. I had to make a normal forum post.

    Thanks for giving your opinion.

    Hi, and thanks for nice thread, hope there would be a lot of interesting comments.
    I'm absolutly disagree with this quote. And I have some arguments: a lot of us here have architectural degree, and if we are talking about the money than architect is a pretty valuable position, but people start doing 3d stuff mostly to have fun, to enjoy their job, to have personal freedom and choose their own way. Cause all CG industry is preety young and creative field, which have a lot of opportunities and provide different ways how you can realise yourself. More over you can look at any community gallery and you would be impressed with how many personal projects are there, which looks interesting, creative and even stunning and its not a commercial stuff, it is projects that people make to have fun, to improve their skills and to share their creative vision.
    Though this is personal opinion, I could be wrong and I know that in some situations its all about the money, but I hope that in general my thoughts are right.

    This sounds too much like all the insipid meme-ish shameware my cousin posts on Facebook, for example 'like if you are the proud daughter of a strong mother' or 'hit like and share withing ten minutes to receive good luck and a plastic Jesus for your dashboard'.

    If money is the root of all happiness, then when you find happiness you should be able to type cd.. until you attaining money. I just tried that. It didn't work. So there's your answer.

    My vote is that this is a silly question.

    Interesting to note though, is that Hawaii is the highest dollar amount to consider oneself "happy".

    The people who consider money to be the root of happiness will insist "its true money cant buy everything. But its the root of happiness. they even brought a wicked dialog, " you need money to get a happy wife", Although my point was if you need money to get love from wife or to make her happy then just go to brothel. there are plenty of beautiful women waiting for you to share their flesh just for $$.

    I tried to be more descriptive while reasoning with them. for example I said,

    For some people its a good health thats considered as the root of happiness because he is struck by diabetic.
    For some people its a A loyal wife who loves you no matter what.

    So the quote itself is a foolish quote, "money is the root of all happiness."
    Well at the end of the day its my opinion. So I just wanted to see how many people in this forum agree with this quote.

    Money does not buy happiness, but it cures a lot of the sadness.

    Every person I have ever met that was obsessed about money or becoming rich has always turned out to be 100% untrustworthy, and in the end, the kinds of people I avoid at all costs.

    Earning a decent living in one thing; basing one's self-worth on how much money one can accumulate is something else.

    The lust for money IS the root of all evil -- just look at our world!

    ' Couldn't agree more! (- and am constantly amazed and saddened by those who demonstrate an inability to recognise what to me seems obvious.)
