The meanings of these two phrases are fairly transparent. Here are some examples that might clarify them.
1. Make more from your money
a) The expression "to make money" = "to earn money", eg He makes his money by investing in stocks and shares
b) Imagine ou have $1000 (="your money")
- If you save it in Bank A they will give you 1% interest. So in a year you will make $10.
- If you save it in Bank B they will give you 2% interest. So in a year you will make $20.
So, by saving with Bank B you will "make more from your money" than if you saved it in Bank A
2. There is more to life than work
This means that other things in life - your family, your interests, etc are important and that someone who dedicates themself 100% to work, leaving time for nothing else, is missing out on other important parts of life. For example :
David works 70 hours a week. He's always exhausted and he's really stressed. He has no friends and after work he just goes home to bed. He needs to rethink his priorities and change his lifestyle - there's more to life than work
