Is money Everything?

I mean to say is a person fully happy if he/she has plenty of Money? Can only the things that money can purchase give us all that we need to be happy? What do you think?

No, I don't think money can make a person truly happy. I think some people believe if they had more money then they wold be a happier person. I look to Hollywood to see all of the famous/rich people, and I see how they are loaded with money but yet can never really find true happiness with a spouse/mate, many are consumed with their appearances, and a few battle addictions. I look at them and I am thankful for the life I have, it may not be full of monetary riches, but I am rich in other ways, and that is what truly makes me happy.

It surely isn't everything to make you happy, plenty of money can make life easier and less stressfull because you don't have to worry about bills not being able to pay and everything. On the other hand, when you have a lot of money you worry about it getting stolen or about paparazzi or getting shot or stuff like that; it doesn't make you a lot happies either. I think the best thing is learning to be happy with what you've got, and it it's enough to keep yourself dressed and happy and you have enough to eat and do fun stuff every once in a while, I guess you are a lot richer than when you are a millionair and can't even go get a sandwich without being stared at or taken photographs of. Also, if you can buy anything straight away it isn't as much a pleasure as when you are saving up to it and finally get it, it feels like you concoured it :)
