    Smile Life is about more than making money.

    Life is about much more than making money.
    Life is much more than making money.



    Which one of the above two versions reads better to you? Are they both all right? Are they not identical in meaning?

    Re: Life is about more than making money.

    I like the first one better. The first one seems clear that Making Money is part of life (but there is much more). The second one sounds like you are comparing Life to Making Money.

    Re: Life is about more than making money.

    Thanks, oitafish, for your reply.

    It's funny that the second implies that making money is a small part of life to me. Life is much more than just making money.
