Money is an indispensable part of modern society – whether we like it or not. We need money to buy things to eat, drink, and wear. We would find it very hard to survive without money. Money makes exchange of goods much simpler and more convenient.

All of us use money in one form or another every day, and this importance is also reflected in our language. English has many proverbs, idioms and expressions related to money.

Here are a few examples:

1. Money is the root of all evil
2. Money makes the world go around
3. Money doesn’t grow on trees
4. I’m not made of money
5. Put your money where your mouth is

Do any others come to mind?

1. Money is the root of all evil

This expression actually is commenly used, however the original (and more insightful) quote was:

"The LOVE of money is the root of all evil."

Note to wocca, I was in no way trying to correct anything, just thought it would be interesting to point out the subtle, yet important difference, between the two.

That's certainly more insightful and interesting

I think money is great when it is being used for the right purpose. I hope to make more money in my life but only because it is important for me for my future plans. The ideal scenario will be to use it all up for good purposes and be left with none when I die...and hopefully I will be able to do that.

But when money is the driver in your life, your reason for being, then it can be pretty destructive. Once you have it, you realize it is only a short-lived pleasure that brings no fulfillnent other than unneeded material posessions.

Money does not buy happiness (but it certainly makes misery more easy to take;))

Money is just a element to live. Nothing more than that.

If money is not important, then why are the things I want to buy not free?

Money can't buy love, but it's not love I want; it's that new car!
