So Right, Yet So Wrong 9/22/05 “Rather than money, than fame, than love, give me truth.” - Henry David Thoreau Men and women live their entire lives in pursuit of happiness. Whether their idea of happiness is acquiring a fortune, being a celebrity, or winning a super bowl depends on the person. In my personal opinion, Thoreau was correct in his assessment about money and fame being rather trivial. But without love, life really isn't worth living. While truth may lead to a richer life, love is detrimental to being truly happy. Wealth is one of the top driving forces in the modern world. We lie, cheat, steal, and even kill for it. People have a hard time seeing past their own greed, to determine right from wrong. If only more people would realize there are better things to live for, maybe the world wouldn't be half as messed up as it currently is. As far as I am concerned, truth is a lot more important than the destructive force that is wealth. Too bad our lives revolve around monetary gain.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
