It's not money that gives us happiness, but the things we buy with it do.
I would love to take a ride on that boat then have a pocket full of cotton paper.

I think the real happiness comes from the fact that someone was nice enough to give you ten dollars, and less from the ten dollars itself.

I don't think you understand the full meaning of the phrase.

It's deeper meaning means that you could have everything in the world with money, but if you don't have your health, or your loved ones with you, you won't be truly happy.

Those things obtained through means that don't require money mean more to us and make us happier than those that are obtained through means that do require money

I hate the statement too.   
   
Money does buy happiness   
   
Food, shelter, video games, internet... that **** costs money and is required for happiness.   
   
Hell even human life can be bought. Think about healthcare, or hell actual humans.

No.

Money will give you happiness for the first week, month, or even the first year. But look after that, it'll be old. Eventually, your happiness will be at the same level as it was when you didn't have the money. Still don't believe me? Why do you think so many millionaires commit suicide and resort to drug abuse and alcoholism? Because they aren't happy, and they're looking for happiness.

***** I've been poor and miserable all my life.

I lost 10 pounds in 2 years.

Happiness is simple, food, shelter, entertainment, and peace. Yes... beautiful peace. Peace which I cannot obtain since I have no money.

Some people are just morons, but I'm a simple man. My largest desire at any given moment is good food to fill my belly. After that comes the freedom to sleep on my own schedule. After that entertainment, and after that stuff like art, writing, and invention.

Like it or not money is the key to happiness, hell without it you can't live. Because without money no food, no food; death.

You really are a dense ************ if you think that money is the source of happiness.

You know that countries like Switzerland, Finland, and Norway are very developed, even more developed than the U.S in some areas. And what does that equal to? Money. Yet those countries have the highest suicide rates in the world.

I have statistics to back me up.

I do believe I said "key"

Anyways, I believe that millions are starving in poverty right now, and I doubt they are very happy. How's that for statistics?

I could care less about suicidal morons who are blessed.

I pity those who think that money can buy you happiness and not family, love, or games.


Bill Gates even said that "Wanting to have a million dollars is understandable. But after that, it's really the same thing."

You WILL be happy for the first several months or year. But it gets OLD. The happiness that you can extract from money is not long-lasting. I've experienced it as well. When I first bought Skyrim, I was extremely happy. But nowadays, I barely even play.

Well, maybe you have to be in a poorer mans shoes to know how desperately important it is. Listen man, I'm getting older, I can't even support myself, much less live on my own. I'm stuck in hell because I simply can't afford to get away. If you don't think money is important, then give it all to me.

The happiness is infinite. I could get my own place, eat as a pleased, sleep as I pleased most importantly live as I pleased. Go anywhere do anything, and be free.

I've got no interest in petty fools. They can burn in hell with their unhappiness. Trash should just burn.

No. More like you need to be in a richer man's state to know what it's like. I know how it is! You're only gonna be happy for the first couple of months, but after that, it's NOTHING SPECIAL.

Don't tell me that when you first got that phone you wanted, your level of happiness was equal to the level of happiness when you first got it.

I've never even owned a phone. And I knew you were spoiled.

You're such a joke man, it's not about the phone, its what you do with it.

Its not about the money it's what you can do with it.

And what you can't do without it.

Yes, I am spoiled. I came from an upper middle class family, but let me tell you this: No matter how rich you are, you are still susceptible to depression and anxiety. You and I are about as happy as each other right now.

You are not qualified to make assumptions about how happiness is a derivative of money. Money doesn't give you a sense of accomplishment. All it can do is make you feel happy for the short run.


In any scenario, I'd rather be a poor many happy than a rich man sad.

Talk about dense.

"Money doesn't buy you happiness" is a statement I feel is over-used and misused.

The statement, to my knowledge, is saying that money by itself does gives you happiness. Merely it's the moments and times you've had with someone. For example: Buying this volcano boat would be fun and cool but it would be kind of sad if you had no one to share it with.

What do I know though, I'm just a idiot anon to lazy to create a account.

As much as I agree with you I find it ironic you put a gif from the great gatsby where we realize not all things can be bought with money.
