I seriously cannot stand money. I believe many people get so focused on making money that they never truly get to expierence living. Obviously it is vital to have throughout life, but I just feel that if it is focused on too much then people miss out of so many other things! I would not lie or steal or do anything extreme for money. As long as I can care for my family and myself then I have everything I need. Unfortunately, that does mean I have to make money in some form, but I do not spend all my time or energy on doing so as there are more important things!

Though money is important, it is not worth to lose your soul over it.
“Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real.”
― Nora Ephron

I would rather sell on the Street or market for if the situation at the moment is very critical. I will not do anything illegal for money, God forbid me to do that.

I don't have a lot of greed for money. I don't "need" all the new fancy doodahs... And I have pretty high moral standards. That said, I wouldn't be able to say I wouldn't do something morally reprehensible if the life of my kids were in doubt. I'd take on that "sin" to keep them safe and sin free... and I don't mean this in a religious way. But when you do something bad this way, it is definitely a weight you would carry the rest of your life.

I'm greeding for money right this year. Well, many ways I think about how to get easier and bigger money. Of course because of media influence, I can think of prostitution but my conscience forcing me not to do it. My mother will be hurt if she'll know about it and I don't want to hurt her. So what I did was searched for online jobs so I can earn while studying. I badly needed money to help my mother in financial matters but not in a way that can make my dignity dirty.

No it is not worth it I don't know why people would even think about it in the first place

I would do nothing for money. The money I want is that I have worked for. It has the power to destroy above anything. My principles and values are more important.

A year ago I would have done anything for money if the opportunity came but now I realize that money isn't everything and I'm still happy without money, I wouldn't lose my morals just to get money. I'm young and I still have a long way to go,money will only come if I work hard for it

It depends on the situation you find yourself. It would be hypocritical of me to categorically start that I can't do this or that for money. I guess it's right to say desperate times call for desperate measures.

There are many things people say they would never do. I would hope I would not compromise my morals or values , but in the face of certain situations a person is never certain what they might do

There are things people should never do for money. Besides working for it I don't think I'd do anything else for money. It's the root of all evil.

I have always felt that if you work hard in your life you will earn enough to sustain you. I don't think you should go against your morals or beliefs just for money.

no, and it shouldn't be. earning money should be like a religion, pure and honest. All of us know the saying "easy come easy go" so it is pretty obvious that easy money doesn't stays very long........... so it shouldn't be obtained from illegal ways

Just like the Bible says, the love of money is the root of all evil. I will never sell my soul or go against my morals and beliefs for money.
