I rate money up there with oxygen. I have not got any but I stay happy enough.
No, but I think that having enough of it definitely helps things along.
No. Happiness is an attitude, a personal choice, it is independent of money. Money can provide security, not happiness.
I don't think money makes you happy. Money can help you feel less stressed out and more secure. However, there are plenty of rich people who are not happy.
I think in today's world, a certain amount of money brings peace of mind. Being happy or "up" is very hard when you are trying to figure out how to put a roof over your head, or meet medical expenses--so while not happiness it provides the security so you can choose to be happy.
I stood on a bluff overlooking the ocean at sunset a few years and a real sense of joy came over me. I thought to myslef, "As long as I am still able to enjoy times like this, it iwll be good to be alive - no matter what else happens.
Didn't cost a cent.
Of course money is important - you use it to purchase food, clothing and shelter - but happiness is so much more than those things. Happiness comes from a well deep inside and rich or poor, it comes from the same deep place.
Yes. The way our society is built, money is needed for most everything. I believe people with money are generally happier than people without.
I think so, it sure helps when you don't have to worry about how you're going to pay your bills.
Money does not in itself create happiness. What it can do, depending on how you use it, is allow peace of mind reducing worries over finances etc, and it can enable you to have experiences such as travel which can enrich your life and your memories, and give you the opportunity to do the things you most enjoy doing.
The bottom line though, is that money cannot buy happiness. Happiness is a state of mind, not a quantity of money, and the poorest of people living a contented life are happier than the richest of people living a stress-filled life.
