    my motto

    I chose "Health is more important than wealth " as my motto.
    I think it is important for me to stay healthy.
    Because I prefer to live an active life.
    For example, if I stay healthy, I can go on a trip with my fiends.
    Also, I can go to other countries to do volunteer work.

    Re: my motto

    It's worth pointing out that you can't go on nice trips or live while you do your volunteer work without some degree of wealth as well.

    The person mentions health and wealth in the motto, but doesn't mention wealth at all in the write-up.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
