Money without contentment and being appreciative will not work for me, it has to be a combination of life and how we make good use of it. A poor man can be happy, even if he doesn't possess any money or other material things in this world, as one can be happy of what they have. Happiness comes within us, we enjoy life not just because of money but because we are thankful of what we receive.

thanks raijin, you are right, if you are not contented without, then you'll never be contented with with! does that make sense... i mean a lot of people say that you cannot buy happiness. it must be true because a lot of rich people are not very happy ones. thanks and have a good day or evening, depending where you are at in the world. c",)

That's true my friend, money isn't everything. It's just a tool to achieve some of our goals, so we have to make good use of it. I think you're from the Philippines, as I am too..=)
