Can money buy happiness?
Can money buy happiness? Various people have various answers. Some people think that money is the source of happiness. With money, one can buy whatever he enjoys. With money, one can do whatever he likes. So, in their minds, money can bring comfort, security, and so on. Money, as they think, is the source of happiness.
But there are still a lot of others who think that money is the root of all evil. Money drives people to steal, to rob, and to break the law. A lot of people became criminals just because they were in search of money. And in the Western countries, there is nothing that can’t be bought by money. Many people lose their own lives when hunting it.
I think that money is essential to life and we cannot do without money. But even though money is necessary to life, it can’t buy happiness. Happiness is not something that can be measured by money. It is a state of mind. One can have plenty of money, with which he can buy whatever he wants, and at the same time he is not happy because he is never satisfied or he is troubled by various kinds of problems. Therefore, although money is necessary for a happy life, it can’t buy happiness.
it is well known that university is greatly different from high school mainly due to that university will hold a large number of activities which benefits college students a lot. from my perspective the most beneficial one is “long-distance running for love” organized by the students union when i am a freshman. the money collected by this activity is contributed to project hope.
it is really my honor to participate the long running because it benefits me greatly not only in body but also in mind. to begin with the activity reminds me of the great importance of physical health. before i go to college i only focus on academic achievements while the physical health misses my attention. but the long-running tells me in time that a sound mind lies in a sound body. additionally during my participation in this activity i am informed well that there are still many children in rural areas who have to drop out of school because of impoverished families. thus for one thing i fully realize the great importance of helping them fulfill their dreams. for another thing i cherish the opportunity to study in university more for when compared with those children in poverty-stricken areas we should harbor a grateful heart.
by and large although i have taken part in many campus activities i deem the long running for love most beneficial to me. and i am looking forward to that more wonderful and meaningful activities will be held in our campus.
