「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

Money is Evil


money can buy a house, but not a home.

money can buy a watch, but not time.

money can buy a bed, but not sleep.

money can buy a book, but not knowledge.

money can buy a medicine, but not good health.

money can buy a position, but not respect.

money can buy blood, but not life.

money can buy sex, but not love.



以上初初讀時頗覺得很精警,又有意義,言之有物,甚有道理。


但若果反轉來看,就發覺有幾項,值得反復思量。


例如:money can buy a house, but not a home.
金錢可以購買一間屋,但不可以買到一個家。


我確確實實可以告訴你,一個家肯定一定不能賣出去,換回金錢。但一間屋只要不是殘破不堪,是可以賣得一點金錢應急的,就算唔賣,到銀行做按揭,起碼都借到一筆小貸款備用。


likewise,money can buy a watch, but not time.
金錢可以購買一隻手錶,但不可買到時間。


若果你隻是金銀潤、棺材仔、真金勞力士、阿米加、帕德菲臘、康詩丹頓、幾時攞去當鋪 pawnshop 去舉,都可以應急,攞返幾棟嘢。縱有 endless idle Time 都唔會換到錢嘅!


還有,還有,money can buy sex, but not love.
金錢可以買到性歡愉,但買不到真愛。


你縱有一萬噸好真的愛,可不可以換到性歡愉呢?更可以說真愛可以一毛錢也不值!


世事是沒有絕對永恒相對的,由聖誕節十二月廿五日,到新曆新年一月一日,是七天時間,但由新曆新年到聖誕節,卻是整整三百多天,要十一個月另廿四天(閏年二十五天),絕對不是相對的。


Money is Evil, however,without money it is worst than evil, you will do many evil to exchange for money.
金錢是萬惡的,但在沒有錢時,你就發窮惡,會做出更惡的事去搵錢!

無錢做鬼都唔靈呀,
唔恨錢扮清高的人只要兩個原因:
1) 老豆大把,根本唔洗自己揾錢,
2) 想揾又揾唔到,咪自己呃自己囉!

做人係要有原則,
但唔可以同自己個錢包做對!

我恨錢架,
除咗做嘢淨錢外,
我期期六合彩都買架,
中返一次就可以係無壓力下工作啦,
你話幾鬼嘆呢!!! =p

呢几句野, 我望完就算, 無深究.

你呢個掉翻轉諗都几有意思, 也合理.
我有錢可以買到 house, watch, bed, book, medicine, position, blood & sex, 但買不到 home, time, sleep, knowledge, good health, respect, life & love.

但係home, time, sleep, knowledge, good health, respect, life & love卻不值一文, 抽象, 無常.

a) 咁如果我有齊house, watch, bed, book, medicine, position, blood & sex, home, time, sleep, knowledge, good health, respect, life & love. 表示我都有錢, 有幸福.

b) 如果我有house, watch, bed, book, medicine, position, blood & sex, 及 money.
或者
c) 我有home, time, sleep, knowledge, good health, respect, life & love, but no money.
都不完美咯.

完美不完美, 滿足不滿足, 應該只看看你的心態而已.

space...錢梗係有好過無好多啦! 不過又唔洗太多, 因為錢一多就會衍生出很多evil, 反而被d 錢累死! PLUS when you are young, you believe in love. well... when you get older (& older), you may still believe in love, but the people! so you may rather have sex!

人老左都係揸住錢o係手穩陣啦!

新鮮兄多謝回應!
我暫時只是等到有金多寶大彩池至投注六合彩。
廿元一票的電腦票若慳返夠我一個下午茶餐嘅。

macy 姐:多謝你的意見。
拋磚引玉 得到 macy 姐更全面分析,是更高層次,又學到嘢嘞!
好同意你的分析,一方是實物滿足,一方是抽象的精神上的滿足。
人需要物質和精神上都得到滿足,能得到幾多呢?各人要求不同,各取所需罷!

imak 姐:多謝你的觀點!
留返啲錢,伺機而動,
物質精神的滿足之外,
又是另一個選擇,謝謝你!

Someone with money has more choices. Rarely the other way round. Just money has it's limitation too.
