How many times have you heard that?  I wish I was rich.  Well, I too wish I was rich.  Not for myself, I am content with a few simple things and require no more.  But if I was rich ~ oh the things I could do to reach out and give a smile, a break, a needed reprieve, a new hope, for so many of my friends who are so deserving and having such hard times.  And for my friends who are into animal rescue ~ oh how I wish I could help them all.  Yes, I wish I was rich just long enough to give it away.

thats the point...in my opinion its good to have enough for living well. but the reason, why ppl are dreaming of beeing rich is because our capitalistic society..the society is showing us the ideals we have to follow..just look on tv, magazines etc where they always are showing "stars"..many of them have never achieved sth really helpful but..they are RICH. the tv is showing the stupid, media-controlled audience theyr "glaumourous live" and so they are telling them that this is what they want to achieve..to me my aim in live is, to create sth wich leaves a new impression..wich might make the ppl think about it..and maybe change theyr way of looking at other people, theyr environment..i dont know really how i want to achieve that...but i think i have got some time left for doing it

I know. It is heart-breaking when you watch friends, family, people sinking because of financial distress and to stand there and not be able to do anything except lend a shoulder to cry on. There are just too many that need help and I want to help them all.

It's just so sad when help requires money ~ like vet bills, or hospital care, or prescriptions, or something as simple as food. And you give what you can, but it isn't enough to help all those that you are about.

Perhaps being rich is simply misunderstood
Its easy to fall under the illusion that rich is measured in a monetary sense.
Perhaps if we weigh with a different measure, richness is more :)

But what do i know :)

I completely agree that life richness has nothing to do with money. But one's ability to feed, shelter, offer medical assistance, animal care, that takes hard cold cash.

Don't we all. It's nice that you'd give it to needy place, I like the animal idea. If I won a few mill I'd prob buy parts of the rainforest so they couldn't cut down the trees or hunt the animals...too many choices!

Thanks for your kind words ~ but I truly believe it. Give me my pens and paper, camera, some movies (maybe some popcorn) and I am content. I don't believe you need tons of material things to be happy. And I have had the pleasure of meeting and becoming friends with such wonderful giving and caring people and it saddens me that there is so little I can do to help, but just be there.
