No money cannot bring happiness. Happiness is a state of mind which can come even if you are in a very bad state.

No money doesn't buy happiness. I think happiness comes from taking the time to enjoy the simple things in life - someone you loves smile, how green the leaves are on the trees in the spring and how beautiful the leaf colours are in the fall. Little things like that make me happy.

on our way of making money,and survive we forgot how to live..we forgot about the little things..and it's so sad,because life is short and at the end,when you draw the line..you will wonder what you did with your days,and wish you had a single extra day to enjoy everything that you didn't

Money can not bring happiness for sure ... I think family, friends, and Trust in God are the keys to happiness

Money... and happiness!!! How many of us connect these two... My opinion is that there too many of us! And this is not good, because money don`t make you feel joy, don`t make you love someone or care about someone, don`t make you angry at someone... money gives you only one feeling that is only connected with money and with nothing else in this world!!! So what`s with money that makes anybody pay attention... money doesn`t bring happiness but they can make this life far more easier to live!!!

Money can make your life so much easier. With that ease comes happiness. Money can allow you to fulfill your dreams but without people to share them with, they are worthless. Money does not buy happines, but it does buy things that will make you happy for the short-term.

Yes, money can bring happiness. Not only can you buy things to make people happy. You can also donate to foundations, or charity. Those who didnt have money before to support their families now do.. So I would definatley say yes.

Happiness comes from within. You are responsible for your own happiness. What makes me happy? Watching my grandchildren grow. (As long as the bills are paid)

no, it can make life easier but not make you happy. I am BROKE and major financial problems, but I am happy. Money would only give me piece of mind to know my family is finacial secure

Once you feel you are financially freedom, then automatically the happiness comes .. As you said life is easier, then everything is simple you become happy..

there is a major role of money to bring happyness in life but excess money causes always problems,which we don't want.so we can say we need some shorts of money to bring happyness.

What is the excess money, is it more that what bill gates have.. say least, $11 Billion owner narayan murthy CEO of Infosys, does he have excess money, i dont think he is not happy..

It can bring some happiness. But happiness needs to come from God,life, family, friends etc....Dont let money control you, you will always be searching for something there will be a big void in your heart.

Wonderful ckukwudi. In your first posting there 404 responses when I am posting this reply. Pardon me if my reply is repetition of some previous replies of my mylotters friends, as truly speaking I have not read all the 404 replies far. Have you read all the replies? It is universally accepted that money can not by happiness. First you have establish what is the definition of happiness, it varies from person to person. To reiterate my statement that money can not buy happiness I shall just cite on example which will be true for most of us. When someone's beloved relation departs the person feels sad and unhappy, if he or she has billions of dollars does it let forget the sadness?

Money can buy anything that you want . It can make you happy in a way that you can have everything in an instant. But money alone cant make one happy.

Well...it depends. Money can BUY happiness, but only if it's an object of some sort. But if you used seeds as money...would seeds bring you happiness? Money doesn't always make me happy. Family, friends, etc. bring happiness to me most of the time. Wow!!!!! You got over 400 responses! I am sooooooo jealous right now. Good going! :o :o :o :o

Hi ckukwudi, Welcome to myLot, I hope you will be here for a long time and make both friends and money. This is a good site that really does pay if you keep posting. Now for your discussion, happiness is a state of mind and you can be happy right now if you choose to be. Money cannot buy happiness and neither can anything else. You alone are responsible for your own happiness. It is not something that you hope to get in the future, if you want happiness you must be happy now, and it really is possible. Blessings.

It i9s not the money that brings you happiness - It is what can get you is what you love - not the money itself. If you are not healthy, negative, abusive, ect...... mony will do nothing but intensify thos urges or feelings. Knowing Thy Self Is What Makes One Happy!

I do agree that money can bring happiness. However, the happiness brought by money is not really permanent. There are times when you want to quit and live a normal life. In other words, you want it to be balanced. In most cases, money may cause a lot of problems and can even put your life in danger.

Hi frnds, I don't believe that money can be happiness in our life's.Suppose if i become a rich person i don't care any one.I will not happy with money.Some tmes only i can money with happy.If money got every one will change in the life and will not help others.They see their own life and benefit.

I think happiness differs for everyone. ME for example. I've saved quite a bit of money. Am I happy? No not really. Reason being is I was always the quiet shy guy. I'm considered too nice to some people. So what makes me happy? Being in a relationship. A happy healthy one at that.. Yea most of them seem to end but while in them I feel the happiest.
