    Money alone doesn't make me happy although it is nice to have some. Its doing things and who I do it with that makes me happy.

    Happiness which is bought by money or comes from luxuries does not remain for long. Thus real happiness, if required to see, can only be eternal and that only comes from a peaceful mind and surrounding.When your loved ones are happy with you and their one smile relaxes your soul,, that is the ultimate happiness of life and this is what I always hunt for..

    Neither!  It is the People who surround my life that give me the greatest joy!

    Padmendra has given the exact answer, I think. Money also has got some values that makes us happy. But running behind material things would never make you contented and that would make you much more greedy. Caring for people that surround us, saving a life, hobbies and the last, money all have got their own places in making us happy.

    For me it is the things and experiences that can be purchased with money that makes me happy. There are many great things in life that are NOT free. Ignoring this only causes frustration.

    Money doesn't lead to happiness. I think that family and friends and feeling loved and supported are the things that should make people happy. I know spending time with my loved ones always makes me feel special and happy.

    What makes me happy is doing things for and helping others. Laughing a lot is also good for a feeling of well-being. Having enough money so you don't have to fret about it is useful.

    Many people have experienced an improvement in their living standards as a result of increase in income levels. With money, consumers can purchase a whole gamut of foreign goods besides local goods. Money is irreversible and irresistible. It has been said that arguing against the possession of wealth is like arguing against the law of gravity.
