Comment on the following statement:
|The most important thing in life is love.
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people say that the most important thing in life is love, whereas others believe that money and business are more important.
In my opinion love is indeed the most important possession one can have. First of all, love can inspire people to do great things. For example, when a person is in love he or she becomes very creative and wants to do something important for humanity. Secondly, love fills people's lives with a lot of positive emotions. For instance, such people in love want to get swept away, sing with rapture and dance like a dervish. Moreover, love makes people noble and more forgiving.
At the same time there are people who think that money is more important. They say that if one has money they can have love easily. Knowing that one has money, people will be attracted to them and they will never feel lonely.
In my opinion love that is based on money is not genuine. One can run out of money and everybody who “loved” them will abandon such moneyless people. I believe that love is a part of human nature and people cannot live without it.
In conclusion I would like to say that love and money are very important things in our life but if I had to choose between money and love I would definitely choose love. Money can be earned, but true love is really hard to obtain. Money and love give different kind of pleasure and I consider pleasure from love is much bigger.
