Words I Love: Money Will Do Everything…

Words I Love: He that is of the opinion money will do everything may well be suspected of doing everything for money --Benjamin Franklin

This week’s Words I Love is a quote from Benjamin Franklin…

He that is of the opinion money will do everything may well be suspected of doing everything for money.

I find this quote to be very true all too often with some people I know but luckily not the majority of the people I know.

What do you think about this quote?

    I think some that feel or act entitled are guilty of this especially if they have blinders on or have no empathy for others.

    I just don’t see how somebody could think that money is everything; surely one must realize how much more there is to life. However, there are definitely people who focus too much on making money and don’t recognize how that negatively affects other people/things they care about.

    I think we are seeing that today with the twitter giveaway from Esurance.

    Very true. I know it is like the cliche from you know where, but I truly believe that money IS the root of all evil. Everything you see in the news that is bad (crime, pollution, insurance issues, and the list goes on and on and one) can come back to money in one way or the other. The only exception is fear, but even that can be about money sometimes.
