In harmony with 和谐共处

Sample answer

There is always a controversy on whether the amount of property one individual possesses can promote his sense of happiness. Some claim firmly that the wealthier a person is, the fewer felicity might he owns. At the mean time, there are a number of people who are insisting in the thoroughly opposite notion. From my perspective, substantial fortune is the fundamental premise of one's living as a human being in reality, and it gives mass accesses for us to achieve our life goals.

To begin with, let's take a brief look at the "hierarchy of needs" theory of Maslow's. According to him, only after one successfully fulfills each of these lower four levels can one strive to attain what Maslow called self actualization. It is the physical need for food and clothes that lies in the first floor of the initial four levels. In other words, if one’s stomach have not been filled with comestible and there are no sufficient clothes to make them warm, how can they even get adequate energy to struggle for a living, let alone attain a feeling of joy and satisfaction heartfelt. Comparing to the old ages such as the sixth decade of the 19th in China, people now build up a much sturdier body and are able to resist more tough conditions thanks to the improvement of human's financial situations. It is considerable hard for people in the early age to pursue psychological enjoyment when they still found trouble in meeting the basic requirement of the family.

It cannot be denied that it is more easily for people's dreams to come true with the assist of abundant substantial property. Individuals can do good things to others by means of donating a reasonable portion of their possessions to those who are in need of as well as helping youth establish their own business. What Bill Gates did sets up an admirable example to the public. People who have ample capital supports are capable of doing further research in a specific area and thus, bringing the latest science and technology to the entire world. Without a large amount of money, many inventions and discoveries could not have been gave birth to by researchers. What's more, people can spend money in travelling around the world with family and taking part in worldwide charity project. All of these mentioned above can bring extraordinary content self-satisfaction to people who have done these things with their possessions.

Even though there may exists several minor side effects of possessing too much property, I still believe that human’s happiness have a lot to do with the scale of their wealth. As one sentence of a lyric in the song "the most romantic thing" says, the most romantic thing in my mind is to get old slowly with you广 But how can a couple get along in harmony with each other when they have disputes on the issue of using money in different purposes due to the deficiency of their deposit? What matters most, from my point of view, is how a person values his possession and whether can he find the proper balance between the property and the way he use it in.
