Money is a great inspiration for some of us. It prompts them to work harder, motivates their feelings, and makes them achieve the target within the stipulated time.
We need cash to meet the basic necessities of life. It is required to pay for food, travel, medicines, a good home, and others. But I can’t agree that funds are everything in our life. There are several things that are more valuable than a high bank balance, especially if you found the true meaning of love. Do you agree?
