This question may be simple but accountable. If you are asked to pick one of these 3 for your entire life, which one will you choose ?
To make this question more simple, How would you like to called ? to be called as intellectual person, or rich person, or kind person.
It is very difficult for a common man to choose, because all these 3 are needed at some part of our life time. Here I'm not including the minority ascetic people in consideration but only a laypeople.
- Money never comes our way, until we go and get it;
- Love never comes our way, until we go and share it;
- Intellect never comes our way, until we go and find it;
Intellect is nothing but a thought, love is nothing but an emotion but money is just a man made thing newly added for this competition.
Love makes you to do of something which cannot be done by money and intellect; It keeps the bonds of relationships and makes the planet livable for humans, Else it would be mob of machines at homes just like a robot without any emotions. If you think you can reach the fame with money or intellect alone, I will show you how Mother Teresa got her fame with her love. The more you share love, more you lose yourself. Your intellect and money cannot help you when you are old, who needs to be loved.
But can we live happily only with love ? my answer would be a big No. Practically speaking, nowadays even to share the love, we need money and intellect. Your child doesn't always expects your kisses, sometimes he needs cloths and toys he likes.
Money can help you to buy a dog, Intellect can help you to choose which dog to buy. Only Love can able make him wag his tail. Love alone can give you the soul satisfaction & peace.
There is a famous saying “It is better to cry in a BMW rather than on a cycle”. This statement is indeed true. It is better to be comfortably unhappy than being uncomfortably unhappy.
Money is the only man made thing which can conquer the intellect and love. The more you get it, more it demands your attention. Now situations are changed in such a way that we need money even to live, which wasn't existed when humans were created. We need money to survive, to be comfortable, to indulge and enjoy ourselves. It is required to fulfill the basic needs of humans - water, food & shelter.
Money cannot buy happiness, but surely money can buy a thing you like which makes you happy. If I need to eat something which I like, I need money. There I get the happiness.
Money can say it is important, but it can be lost. Love can say it is important, but it can be broken. Only intellect can be a life long treasure. You can buy a thing with money, But intellect needs to there to tell which is right to buy. You can make a relationship with love, But you need intellect to know which is not fake.
One cannot buy a solution to save oneself in utter emergency situations. One has to have the intellect to deal with it. More intellectual people are being remembered in history than rich/kind people.
There are certain things which cannot be bought by love & money but with only intellect, And they are manners, common sense, morals, class, integrity, etc..
It is quite difficult to come to a conclusion as they are from different category but entwined together. It is individual's responsibility to know how to use these 3 in their life.
- Love is to share, but we need money to share it;
- Money is to share, but we need love to share it;
- Intellect is understanding the above, but we need a life to know this;
If I had to chose one, I cannot choose one option alone...
