    Money can bring happiness if you use it wisely like example; let's say that you hit the jackpot and you win $1,000,000 dollars and after just getting the money you start saving like half for future needs and the other half you spend it for wants that you need. That would make your life full of joy because you will be spending and saving money at the same time.

    Not quite. Money may bring pleasure, but not happiness. Happiness is a totally different league...no material wealth can provide happiness, even if the wealth is spent prudently. All material possessions just bring a temporary pseudo-euphoric feeling in the mind of that individual, not happiness.

    I have to agree because you can't buy friends and they are the ones who make us happy, sad, and mad.But that is the way of life.There is not we can do about that. And at the end when we died, we can't take the stuff we bought with the money.

    Re: Happiness

    I agree, money as an extravagance brings only temporary happiness......

    But many ppl in the world now are too poor to even buy food for a small meal, or buy medicine for a simple bruise or cut......even a few dollars would certainly make them a lot happier, let alone a million dollars

    And it really is unfair how our little world works.......ppl who r alredy richer than we can even imagine, keep gettin even richer! But ppl who r alredy too poor to even feed their family a single meal dont get very much even if they really tried. It seems that the ppl who need the money the most........
