    The two most precious things in most people’s lives would be...time and money. If you were faced with a situation where you could choose only one between these two, which one would you give more importance to and chose that? Why?

    Time. Because in time you can make more money....
    Time has space for everything you want to achieve.
    Money comes and goes during this time.

    Time is bigger...

    What good is money if you have no time? If you have no time it's hard to do things and enjoy life.

    Time is the grand-daddy of things to have. Everything significant in religious or just fantastic pieces of literature have to do with having a lot of time, which leads me to believe that time is more valuable than anything that can be created (like money).

    Time.

    Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge and all of the others, including Love…
    One day, it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all repaired their boats and left.
    Love was the only one who stayed.
    Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment.
    When the island was almost sinking, Love decided to ask for help.
    Richness was passing by Love in a great boat.
    Love said: "Richness, can you take me with you?"
    Richness answered: "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."
    Love decided to ask Vanity, who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel: "Vanity, please help me!"'
    "I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered.
    Sadness was close by, so Love asked for help: "Sadness, let me go with you."
    "Oh...Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!"
    Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her!
    Suddenly, there was a voice: "Come Love, I will take you." It was an elder.
    Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the elder her name.
    When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way.
    Love realizing how much he owed the elder asked Knowledge, another elder: "Who helped me?"
    "It was Time", Knowledge answered.
    "Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?"
    Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered:
    "Because only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is."

    Money can't by love.

    Yeah, time. It's much more important to me, but it would be interesting to see someone argue otherwise.

    Of course, you can enjoy the time more if you have money :D But what good is lots of money, with little time to enjoy it.

    Time. If one has enough time money can be made, however if money were one's only objective then I would feel pity for the person as they have not seen fit to actually enjoy life...with all it's ups and downs I think we all need to stop and enjoy what we do have particularly on the personal and intimate side of things. Greed never gave anyone long-lasting satisfaction.
