Capital Gains


The funniest thing about money - It is always someone else's!! We think that with money, we can have everything, but we cannot. We can buy food, but not appetite; clothes, but not the body; house, but not a living style; knowledge but not wisdom; rings, but not commitment; fun, but not joy; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; leisure, but not peace. Often we attempt to live our lives backwards; we try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what we want, so we will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. We must first be who we really are, then do what we need to do, in order to have what we want. After all, money is the means to an end.

@ simran.. money is something.. not everything.. a person can probably earn more by selling sexual services in one night than in a month.. but does everyone does it? a person can kill for it.. but is everyone a killer? there is a big difference in needs and wants.. needs are basic.. wants vary.. the utility of money is individualistic.. for some people it is god, for others it's just paper.. its how you look at life with or without is what matters. Ambani's might be the richest guys in india.. but i'm sure they still eat the same amount of food like everyone else.. the quality might be different but the quantity remains the same.
