The reason we have poverty is that we have no imagination. There are a great many people accumulating what they think is vast wealth, but it's only money... they don't know how to enjoy it, because they have no imagination!

Good morning, Paul... I've given this quote some thought and I'm not sure I agree. I need to think some more.

Good morning Paul. Second time, first comment ate by the 500 internal message error. It needs to be put back in the cage with the dog. Imagination is the foundation of great accomplishment. Perhaps that is why we have so little accomplishment? Enjoy your day.

There are many ways to be "wealthy". Money is just one of them.

Hi Paul- it's an interesting quote but far be it from me to tell someone how to spend their money. For me, however, I would use it to care for my family first, then friends, and the rest to those who need it.

Hi Paul one of my dear friends was very very wealthy and somehow she just never could figure out how to be happy all that much when she was younger.  But she was a highly creative interior designer and so much fun too.  She did finally come to terms with it all and did a lot of good in the world.

That internal 500 message is becoming quite boring. I’m sure they’re aware of it Wayne Martin

I would never try to influence somebody on investing or anything who of how to spend their money except in real estate 🙂

Good morning Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS, I know a few people who can't

spend their money and never be satisfied or happy with what they have. What good is having all that wealth if we can't enjoy it.

Paul, sometimes with imagination, you don't need money. Some of the poorest people have the happiest lives because of imagination.
