In a way yes. I'll be a hypocrite if I say otherwise. I cannot deny that money is necessary in carrying daily activities that bring joy to us. There are things that you can buy with money that brings happiness like entertainment, hobbies, and material things. Happiness from these only last when we have them then ceases. However, there are also things that money can’t buy. And from my opinion these are the things that matters most. Like the joy that love brings, the peace that comes with contentment, the smile from an infant’s face….. the little things most of us neglect.

no,money never bring happiness.in fact i only got to th conclusion that they bring troubles and stress...unfortunately we can't survive withouth money but in our days people struggle so much to survive that they forgot how to live...there are so many things in this life that are worth enjoying...my opinion is that money should be,but only enough for a decent life..in rest we need our health..we need a person next to us that we love and loves us..and we need to enjoy the small things in life..life is already so short..we don't realise when another day has passed because some of us are still young..but when we grow old we will start counting the days and we will regret more what we didn;t do in our life rather than what we did

It depends on the situation. If you have an illness and there's a cure for it but you can't afford it than I would say that money buys happiness because with money you can buy the cure and survive, if you don't have it there's nothing to do. Otherwise you can have all the money in the world and if you're not happy with your life... there's no money in the world that can buy you happiness. That's what I think.

No! Absolutely not! Money are very important, in this period I have big problems with money and so I can tell you that money are very important to live, in Italy, my country, the life is very expensive now, and so I'm forced to pay attention when I go to the shops and to the supermarket, but I don't think that you can buy happiness with money. There are things that you'll never be able to buy: love and health. You can be the richest person in the world, but if you have a deadly disease, what will you do with all your thousand millions pounds?

No, I have have depression and in my mood I get what my b/f calls hot pockets and I spend money I don't have. Does this help my depression and make me happy, NO, it make me feel worse, it makes me feel guilty and it also makes me feel low and out of control. So no money can not buy happiness, just rents it for a few moments and when the shock wears off then guilt sets in.

No. I used to stand firm in saying no but sometimes I would say yes. Maybe because with money, I don't have to worry for work and just spend my time with my daughter and family. But still with no money I am quite much happy. +)

It may not be able to buy happiness, but it can buy peace of mind, knowing that you have money for the mortgage and the car and food is a good feeling. Not having them can sure make you uncomfortable, happy and nervous. I sure could use some peace of mind.

Well, I think so because if I buy things that are going to make me happy, in some way I would be buying happiness. But I also think that the best things in life are free, so I wouldn't really need to buy all those things for being happy.

Money really can buy hapiness because a lot of people are too greedy now, lol. It can really buy happiness because people are so materialistic that they can only find hapiness through using money and buy stuffs like that. What they can't really buy is the true hapiness they needed because you can't buy that because you can only feel that. And you'll be more happy if you knew you are satisfied. You can't find satisfaction ont hose things that you buy because you'll be so spendthrift that you can't control it. Hapiness is satisfaction for me.

Money! Money! Money! Who does not need it? Money is a piece of paper or metal, but it can be exchanged for many things. We cannot realize our lives without it. I think everybody needs a certain amount of it to feel themselves happy, not a very big amount though. Because money can also bring pain and sorrow, especially when it is in big amounts.

i dont think it can buy you happiness, not even half of it. money isnot evrything. it can only give material things, but not happiness.
