"In the frenzy of modern life we lose sight of the
real value of humanity. People become the sum total
of what they produce. Human beings act like machines
whose function is to make money. This is absolutely
wrong. The purpose of making money is the happiness
of humankind, not the other way round. Humans are not
for money, money is for humans. We need enough to
live, so money is necessary, but we also need to
realize that if there is too much attachment to
wealth, it does not help at all. As the saints of
India and Tibet tell us, the wealthier one becomes,
the more suffering one endures." - His Holiness
the Dalai Lama, How to Practice
