Can money buy happiness?
No, its not havin 10 million $$s in yo account. Happiness is to be loved unconditionally, having the Lord Jesus in your life, etc. Its actually a word you can feel but cant define.
What would you choose? Millions of Dollars or Jesus? Choose Jesus, 'cause the $$ is temporary while Jesus is eternal
then everybody gon be after yo a** and take yo sh*t. Somebody gon find out and spread the word. Then who gon be happy?
yea but then again, the people around are gonna be after them and gon wanna rob they a**. Then they wont be happy.
To quote Daniel Tosh; have you ever seen anyone frown on a jet ski??
No, but it can help. It can alleviate a lot of worries, but then again it can create some more
Money can buy freedom from debt.To me that would be happiness.Additionally,it world be nice to secure a finantual future for my children.
If you give someone twenty bucks, they'll be happy.
I think it can. But it isn't a guarantee of happiness.
Only to the same extent "no money" can cause unhappiness. I reckon even those with money can appreciate this thought.
Money. buys security. These days in America the rich are the only ones to afford to run for public office and the only people our politicians care about is the ones who line the campaign coffers
Money spent correctly can make one happier. It has been scientifically proven that if you give more you become happier so in sense you can buy happiness.
Only God can provide true, lasting, eternal happiness.
Money can "buy" (pay) Sallie Mae off my back. So in that case, yes, yes it can.
I'm willing to explore the hypothesis, can someone say grant opportunity?
I'ld be happier crying in a Jag then on a sitting on the curb.
If money paid off my school loans, I'd be really happy...
Of COURSE it does!
Enough money can afford me anything I want and that could definitely make me happy.
I think we have overlooked the words "can" it simply means that money has the potential to cause happiness. Donated money brings about happiness to the donor and recipient. Living a life with plenty "can" being about happiness. In no means does money Always bring about happiness.
My mother is living proof money can't buy happiness.
Money can buy a jet ski! And its impossible to be unhappy on one of those
Yes, money can buy pets!
yes it can. but that doesn't mean that its the only thing that can make you happy.
Ever seen somebody frowning on a Waverunner?
I don't know if it buys happiness but it sure doesn't buy unhappiness.
money cant buy love but it can buy a yacht and a rolls royce and so on. Consequently youll be fighting love off with a stick.
No, but it certainly helps...
True, EarlyBird. Sometimes, though, they become addicted to drugs, which they can now afford a LOT of. Sometimes it's harassment by family, friends & strangers. Maybe being uneducated is a factor in some of that too. I've heard it suggested that winners get a good financial advisor immediately.
No, but it can rent it.
Money can make you happier, but it can't buy happiness on its own.
You're kidding right??
Sorry but I'm much happier with things like shelter, food, and clothing!
I'm white I don't get that shit for free!!!
Even though you may not buy happiness not having money can certainly prevent it . Such as love if you do not have money for a car you must date within a walking distance. Then there's $ for family ,appearance ,waterand all sorts of stuff that can bring you down
Yes but Susan, the people who usually win the lottery are not well educated. It's easy to see they will be prime targets for scammers.
It's statistically proven that money does NOT buy happiness. If it buys any sort of happiness, it is very temporary. Surveys across the entire world show that rich people are no happier than poor people. In America though, money makes you only a small percentage happier than those without. Fact.
Yes it can you just have to know how to not wast it on cars and houses. You need to give to charity or help proved food for some soup kitchens or give new winter boots and costs to good will or some non profit organization
I agree I much prefer to be depressed and rich then depressed and poor. At least if I'm rich I can pay someone to help
You cannot tell me that you have never bought or received something that made you happy.
Happiness at Disney is partly because it's a self-selecting group. To a good extent, people who wouldn't like it don't go there in the first place. And on a jet ski - well, *I* wouldn't look sad... more like terrified.
Revisit them a year or three after that lottery win. There are few happy stories there. Seriously.
Yo, @EarlyBird! That'd probably be because money will eventually run out. (For some!) :)
Jae- Times are so tough right now that many people are living the same way as you. Hang in there.
Kanye said it best "having money isn't everything..not having it is"
Try being thankful for the things you DO have. Rather than focusing on all the negatives, try keeping a "Blessings Journal." it's amazing how your attitude will chance when you change your focus.
Have you seen ""Fiddler on the Roof?" I love when Tevia sings, "If I Were a Rich Man." Look for it on YouTube. I think you'll get a kick out of it!
No, but i'm willing to take my chances.
It can buy the things that make happy plus you never see anyone get depressed when they win the lottery.
Money may not buy happiness but its better to cry in a 7 room mansion then it is to cry on the streets.
Can it? Yes.
Does it always? No.
Money can enlarge breasts. Breasts are happy. Therefor money buys happiness.
Not all the time, but hey you'll be happier with than without.
I work in a country club. A majority of my members are the most miserable people I've ever met, regardless of their wealth. Money and happiness don't necessarily go hand in hand.
