The census is Love and I agree, but it's not so cut and dry.

I think both are important. So, I didn't vote.

Both can be found if you look in the right place. I don't believe one is more rare than the other, it is all about attitude and perspective.

I believe money can bring people close and push them far apart. It's always better if you meet someone before you have money, because then you know that they were there for you and not  your money. It's unfortunate that certain people value money in such high regards that they let it determine their partner and the rest of their life. People always want what they don't have and the grass is always greener on the other side. Money can buy you things that love can not and love can buy you things that money can not.

Love is a revolving door, if you don't have the time, patients, motivations, or drive to hop in and push you will never find it. Money and love have many aspects in common with one another. You can't cheat love, but you can cheat money, this is why moneys cheap and love isn't.

Love over money every time.

 

.I have always lived my life recycling, repairing or swapping skills I have for things I want or need doing..  I work enough hours to pay my rent, pay for food and utilities and then I don't work again unless an unexpected expense crops up or its time to pay the next months bills. A bit unusual but it works for me.

 

I have had money. I have been broke and homeless. Never had love until recently. And it is amazing!  :wub:that is  :biggrin:

Money is easy and can thrive adequately amid deception and selfishness,

Love is the tough one, it requires a level of both honesty and selflessness.    

But the above quote says it more eloquently than the 10,000 words that come to my mind.

Love exists in a dimension without bills or taxes, ask a bushman or a mushroom..   :meditate:

Love (IMHO) is an energy, compared to money or riches which are just commodities.

The great thing about love over money is that when you freely give love, the amount you have doesn't diminish, that is not the case with money.

I guess I'm old and disgruntled with love. Made a lot of bad decisions for love.

It doesn't have to be love of a specific person. It can be just the love of ones fellow man, or love of mother nature.

Try doing some random acts of kindness that you expect no return, or reward from. You might be surprised how much it helps to heal the inner you and leave you with feelings of happiness.

The answer to this question reveals to the individual where their values are placed.............

 

What one does with that information is up to them...........personally I'll love the folks I love with or without Caesar's coins........

 

If the rest of society would leave me the fuck alone I wouldn't worry about it too much.........

 

As things stand today most of us are roped into indentured servitude and extorted by a gang of fucking criminals calling themselves the "authority".........

 

I'm almost completely out of their game now and it feels great........I own everything I have to the extent that is allowed by said criminals..........

 

Still I'll choose to take love over money any day of the week.............I decline to elaborate any further............

The avatar is actually Jack Deth, from the b sci fi movie series Trancers. I'm a big b movie fan. In real life, I look like Mick Foley or Jerry Garcia, depending on how much hair I'm running at the time

Jerry's kids.   Henh.

 

When the ideas held about love are of a personalized form, love becomes a kind of a deal, and not so far removed from our relationships with money.   The only love we feel is in ourselves, whether or not someone or something else is involved.    It's that impersonal love inside us that's the real deal.  We might come to know it and then make the mistake of thinking it came from somewhere else.   We are love, and what we believe separates us from the experience of ourselves, the way we arrived here.   Don't believe anything you think about love, because it's way beyond that kind of knowing.

Hahahahahahaha....Jerry's kids........... :biggrin: These are known as Topia Coffee Spitting Incident's..... TCSI

 

See humans are sign makers, we label stuff and think we know whats going on because we labeled it....

 

Like anything else I think I know I don't really take it too seriously anymore.......I do well to remember that I'm full of shit

 

But when the big three agree on something I have reprogrammed myself to place my value there......and pay particular attention

 

If my head-heart-gut complex agree it tends to make the gardens grow well.........(I'm on a metaphor kick lately)
