"Money is the root of all evil."

Do you think this is true? How can money lead people to do bad things? Do you think money can do good things? If so, give examples! (Note: Although many people repeat this quote, the original saying was "Love of money is the root of all evil".)

"I am opposed to millionaires, but it would be dangerous to offer me the position."
- Mark Twain

Is there too much greed in the world? Maybe. But if YOU could be rich, would you accept or refuse? What would you buy first if you had so much money?
"A single idea - the sudden flash of a thought - may be worth a million dollars."
- Robert Collier

Do you think it's possible to turn ideas into money? How? What good ideas have you heard about in recent years? What's the best idea you have ever had? Can you find a way to turn it into a million dollars?
"If you can actually count your money, then you're not a rich man."
- J. Paul Getty

When J. Paul Getty was alive, he was one of the richest men in America. To him, a million dollars must have been nothing. How about for you? How much money do you want to have in the future? How much money will be "enough"? Would you like to have so much money that you couldn't count it? What would you do with so much money?
