happiness can make you rich in literal form or in the spiritual form (depends on what you're happy about) but money can't real happiness though it can lead you to that but can't simply buy that, money can only buy fake happiness but not the profound one :-)

But money can still buy happiness even though it is fake but happiness can't buy you money, fake or not. :-) hehehe

i agree with with you miss bong money can't buy happiness because we cannot buy money.. are they fake happiness in this world? for me theres none. it because if we are happy because that is what we feel right? and i don't think so that there are true happiness. but i do agree that we can't buy happiness.

I would prefer to be happy. I just have the experience what it felt like to be a rich person. NOt me! But my ex-boyfriend for 8 years. His family and relatives have 8 to 10 zeros in their bank account. And they also have a private jet. Which is lucky for both us because we have a long distance relationship ever since he went to college in Quezon. And it is really hard to live like he did. There are always bodyguard everywhere we go, even though some of them will have to "cross-dress" so that we will not invite enemies or be known by enemies. that is why no one among my friends and classmates knows what his name because I do not want and also my family to become a target. because they have so enemies that is related in business, especially in abroad. Although, their money helps my family with my medical expenses. It is not enough to be rich because someday in your life, you will need happiness. and besides, riches cannot buy happiness as they all say. and if you prefer to be rich, there will come a day, that you will be greedy for more. and when that comes, someday, you will lose what you treasured most. I just wanted to be happy.

I like to choose both of course but between the two I prefer to be rich than happy. Money can't buy true happiness but happiness is easier to get than money. I could find things to make me happy. I also have my family and friends, who always comfort me when I am sad. Being rich could make you happy but being happy won't give you anything, in terms of money. Maybe you would say I love money but this is just my opinion.
