Money = Happiness
The excerpt we read last night by Balzac talked about how Goriot's happiness was defined by money. Goriot no longer has a relationship with his children because he has lost all of his money. He says that money is the cause and solution for his problem. I really like this statement because I feel like even today money is a problem for most people but it is also a way to fix the problems. Money is such a big part of society that people allow it to determine their happiness. What did yall think about the reading and the role money plays in society?
