Well, money can’t buy happiness, but it sure can buy lots of things that contribute mightily to happiness. Money can buy material things, but real happiness must be truly earned. There is probably a viewpoint from the world that said having money will make us happy. But the "truth" is false. Money won't lead us to happiness nor can we buy happiness.

You have to decide what is more important in life the real love between a man and woman or the material things that money buys. More importantly if a man and a woman really love each other and respect each other no one should be able to come between them. We can't put a price on love because it's not for sale. True love has nothing to do with money or the lack of it. It has to do with the people. In the world we live in today it is very hard not to look at the money you make, but life is nothing more than a grace period and once its gone it is forever lost. Love is priceless.

Money can't buy us friendship either. If we think that having lots of money means it will lead to popularity and gaining new friends, then we're just kidding ourselves. Honestly, it seems to me that people who have less money have better friends, and that people with a lot of money may have a couple good friends, but the rest hang around just because it might look good for them to be around that person. Friends is a whole different ballgame, as your income shouldn't effect your friendship. It may affect your social circle of friends if you let it, but your real friends won't care what your annual salary worth is. Money can't buy you friends; but you do get a better class of enemies.
