Can money buy happiness?

After a serious post yesterday, we’re going to switch it up today, and talk about something on the lighter side.  Can money buy happiness?  You, in a time in your life, have probably heard someone say “money can’t buy happiness”.  Now you probably brushed off just thinking of it as an expression.  But if we actually go into detail on this, the money CAN buy happiness side has some valuable factors to consider.  For example, buying a new house makes you happy,  buying a nice car makes you happy,  buying something nice for your family makes you happy.  Of course, it depends on the person but for most people these things make them happy.  Now, the only thing money can’t buy, in my opinion, is love. But if you already have love, I think in the rest of the aspects of your life certainly can be bought, and you will be more than satisfied. This of course is just my opinion, let me know what you guys think in the comments…Can money buy happiness?

  1. This made me remember a quotation from Arne Gorborg:

    For money you can have everything it is said. No, that is not true. You can buy food,
    but not appetite; medicine, but not health; soft beds, but not sleep; knowledge but not intelligence; glitter, but not comfort; fun, but not pleasure; acquaintances, but not friendship; servants, but not faithfulness; grey hair, but not honor; quiet days, but not peace. The shell of all things you can get for money. But not the kernel. That cannot be had for money.

    It really depends on each individual. For me, real happiness means contentment. I could have lots of money and other extravagant things but I’d never be truly happy if don’t feel contentment.

    In my opinion, material happiness is not true happiness. In many cases, people with lots of money would would want more… they never feel contented.
