Queen Bry is right, although I wish she had elaborated. One of your answerers corrected the quote which is often misquoted as you have done. It's "The LOVE of money is the root of all evil," and that's wrong too. Many things contribute to evil in life. All of them deal with the fact that we are not a completely logical species. Personally, I thank God for that! We would be indistinguishable from computers if we were. There's a place for passion and beauty in the world, and it takes emotion to see or feel it. However, those same emotions motivate hate, anger, resentment, jealousy, revenge, avarice, and other evil which doesn't readily come to mind. So, while it's convenient to blame money as the root of all evil, it's nonsense.
