While I must admit that money certainly helps in making life enjoyable, it is not absolutely necessary. There are lots of thngs you can do by yourself, or with friends that won't cost you a penny. For example, go for a walk. Run. Jog in a nearby park or on a beach. Organize a get together with friends and have a few drinks. (ok, that will obviously cost you but it is an expense that can be controlled - especially if everyone pitches in). All I'm trying to say is that it is possible to have a few laughs, get some exercise, do something fun for yourself - without involving money. Try it?

Hey,Garfield.How are you doing....I think you answer is quite signifigance when compare to my other 16 responds.I like it when you said there are lots of thing that doesn't involve money.Money is important to survive and sometimes give life more coloras well.But that doesn't mean it will bring happiness.Sometimes,I feel bore with life when it involves money in lots of things.It is essentail to have it.It is essential to survive but that doesn't mean it will provide happiness.I think happiness is more than survive.A good example of that would be people living in a jail.These people do survive and live without using any money,but everybody knows that they aren't happy people at all.Well,I think Garfield is more happy than lots of people ,at least Garfiled doesn't need to use any money and still can do everything with freedom.Have a nice day Garfield ^_^.

I think you can be happy with little money but it would be very difficult to be happy with no money.

No, my friend! I don't think so. Though money makes a key role in getting the essential things to live a life, but enjoying a life actually doesn't depend on only money. There are people who are very happy even after being poor. The enjoyment of live depends on the physical, psychological, environmental and spiritual state of a person. Suppose, a person who has a lot of money but has very bad health. How can he enjoy life as his life has turned hell for him. And the rich person who is not mentally happy, how can he enjoy life. There are a number of cases like this. Really enjoying life depends on a person's overall existence. Have a nice day.

Money is nice to have and to have a great deal of money would mean that we would have the opportunity to enjoy many of the finer things in life. However, I don't think that you have to be rich in able to enjoy your life. My husband and I are not rich people and we will never be, but we find ways to enjoy our lives that don't cost a lot of money. Because of the fact that we aren't made of money, I think that we find enjoyment and pleasure in simple things that the rich man might miss.

It depends upon the mind set of the people. It is necessary that we need money. But for happiness , not necessary to need money. It is in our mind.

Hmm. Money is not the major concern when it comes enjoying life, maybe some people find it happiness when they have money because they can buy things they wanted to have, or they would say that money has a big major concern when it comes to lovelife, how? there are many people who are still dreaming to have a wonderfull romantic date, like in a five or seven star hotel, coz this kind of poeple are used to have this things in life, but when you look in opposite side, lower class people are not spending so much money coz they much prefer to spend it to their needs and that is practical. Its only a matter of contentment in life. But like you said, if a man is rich has everything he wanted, but alone thats another thing. because i believe that each one of us are meant to someone, and that is really hard to find out.

I think money is important in some aspect but it depends on how you have been bought up around money and what your attitude is to it. Basically if you have no money, you are unable to go out and do things and can get bored and lonely stuck in your house all day. You do not necessarily need huge amounts of money to enjoy yourself however and being rich does not necessarily mean that you are happy it just gives someone one less thing to worry about.

Happiness really is about appreciating what you have. If we equate our happiness based on acquiring things then it is just temporary happiness. Once you have the thing that you wish for then your happiness goes as soon as go get over that thing. It's just like owning your favorite car. Once you have it, chances are you'll have your eyes on another fancy car. Happiness lies on how you appreciate the things that you have. if you want a swimming pool but can't afford it, you can always settle for the inflatable ones and still be happy with it.

I am not going to deny that I love money and I am sure many people will say the same, if I would have a lot of money I would have a nice apartment I wouldn't cook, and I would travel a lot, but all those things are nothing compare with success in your career and the love of your partner, money is important in live, because it gives you some degree of tranquility but family, career success, self esteem, friendship and the love of a devoted partner are more important and it is the best you can have in life.

Like they say money cant buy you happiness. So your right, if your lonely you wont injoy your life. I hope to life a good life meanning i well need money but that doesnt mean i well have a good life. I know people that have nothing but are happy just to be alive to see tomorrow. So money cant by happiness but it could help live a better life. For those who dont have money the have each other and there beliefs.

Money is not everything, and it surely doesn't buy happiness... Money is just something we need to survive, but as long as we have the bare essentials, we don't need anything more. Of course, we want more, and that's really a different subject there. I suppose what I'm trying to say is that money can destroy more then I think it can heal. Of course it can heal too, but you've got to be careful what you try to heal with money.

Yes,People always say money is not everything, but it still kind important in our life. I did not travel around so much because I did't have enough money to rent a car pay a hotel ....and when I sick I just but the cheapest pill and try to getting better by meself, and we do not plan to have kids, because kids mean responsibility.... Money is not everything, but we need have some to keep our living life better!

I think money is very important to enjoy our life. Like you said, everything, include our needs, cost money. Well life is a choice. I think that single lonely rich man, he choose his life like that, with his money, he can hang out somewhere, meeting new people and make friends with people around the world, so why he still be lonely man. I don't believe if there is a rich man who live in loneliness, unless he choose that life himself. Maybe he prefers to stay alone, because he's really afraid if he has many friend, his friends will steal his money. He just afraid to lose his money, thats why he prefer to stay alone, and the consequence is being lonely. Money becomes a very fun thing, if we know how to take advantage from this.
