"Money cannot buy happiness" - Can one be truly happy without money?
Money can buy happiness as happiness is only a temporary state, money can't buy contentment as contentment is a permanent state..What it means is a person who strives for happiness usually uses money to buy things, in an attempt to try to make themselves happy like cars/clothes/houses/boats etc..They will be happy temporarily, but eventually their mind starts desiring other newer better faster bigger things etc..So off they go spending more money to buy more things in pursuit of happiness, but it comes & it goes & never stays..So their always buying/looking/seeking happiness, not knowing it can only ever be temporary as we soon get bored..The reason being is because we're actually all looking for "contentment", & when a person realizes that they no longer need money to buy happiness..They instead try to find out what would lead them to contentment, & they usually find out it was free all along!lol
