It only goes to show you how gullible people are. Why do you think the "you won an iPad 2" offers work?
I don't think I'll ever be truely happy either way but having money pays for lots of high quality smoke so I dont care so much anymore.
Money + Family + Friends = Ultimate Happines!
Agreed if you have lots of money you can just spend time alone, spend time with your family and friends. Do the shit you always wanted to do, never have any stress.
That is the life my friends!
right up there with religion??? what the heck do u mean by that?
I liked your "wise" words but dunnow what you mean by that????
money isnt everything unless you don't have it
guness i need more money then
HELL YEA!!! i say this all the time. Money dosent bring happiness is BS because not having money makes your miserable
Nothing seems funny without money,Honey...
If you have 5k every months to spend extra on your bills you not happy but if next month you have only 500 to spend you really stressed. If you have 100 dollars to spend every months top of the bill you not happy but if next month you have 500 to spend you feel very good. So if you rich give me your money , you feel bad but next month i give to you half of your money back and you happy for limited time
They say the best things in life are free but...........................
Money gets you time ... You can spend it however you like it... Some people just use that time to make more and more money and keep complaining money ruined their life.
unless you become the slave of your work.
what's the use of money if u don't have time to spend it.
That is probably an old saying, when money first began to change people and turn them into greedy individuals that only seek pleasure in different ways, rather than helping other people and showing them the way to getting money.
We live in a world where without money, we cannot survive. If we lived, let's say 3500 years ago, money would be useless. The world changes and so do the things that make us happy, or simply things that are necessary for our existence.
Money is good to have in your pocket, but too much can lead to unhappiness.
"The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time." - Willem de Kooning
Of course money brings happiness. The three most important things in life are 1) health 2) money and 3) love. Trust me on that.
There aren't many problems, money can't solve. Think about that one.
"Love goes out the back door when starvation comes in the front door." quote from my father. He wanted me to marry a good provider.
Whenever I got soft and choose love first it bites me in the ass! get money!!
we already know what makes us happy – and it doesn’t take a genius to guess the answer.
Money – and lots of it – is the most important factor in a person’s happiness. fact.
Lack of money will make your life miserable without a doubt. Losing money is worse.
My strategy: Get F-you money. Meaning get enough money that you don't have to take shit from anyone. If somebody gives you a hard time, just buy their ass.
Edit: Everybody is wh*re, it is just the amount that varies
Money = Freedom and Choice.
Freedom to buy me luv u long time.
Choice to find love or spiritual redemption if that's the way you roll.
"without the stress" part is the killer app.
I know that at the moment I am not moving forward as quickly as I could be, because I am doing the things that slow the progress down. I have so many ideas written down and I could be making a lot more money when I could just outsource the development of the tactics/ideas, but I am moving towards that
People go to work each day to feel sad on pay day, right? Doubt it.
get that money shit
See my sig, i have been saying this all along!
Agree with OP, but the saying is actually twisted and then mentioned (over-hyped) over and over, again and again so that the actual saying and its meaning, IMHO, is forgotten...
IMO, it should be "The over-greed of accumulating money doesn't bring happiness".
Over-greed makes the person and his thoughts corrupt with wrong ideas by which (s)he may hurt a lot of people needlessly and make them all very unhappy in the process.
Accumulating loads of money without using it properly for self- and family-needs at least, will keep the person and his family stay unhappy. Of course if not used correctly, it will also not be useful to the society.
Making loads of money by consistent cheating / killing / bad ruling / tyranny , etc.: Someday/sometime it's surely going to bring extreme "bad luck"... think about what, as a 'bad karma', it can do to the children, wife, relations, self, property, ...
The results of bad karma materializes in due course, but the actual unhappiness / great grief comes over when the person's mind accepts the facts that he/she has erred very badly in life. But by then, too much is lost (apart from money) and that can't be recovered or replaced...
And no, not smoking weed or drinking booze or am out of my mind...

No such thing as bad karma dude. It's all about the money. Karma originates from the same place the "Money doesn't bring happiness" cliché does.
Whitehat Is For Chumps
Money might not bring hapyness for everything, but it can sure bring happyness for the biggest part.
I prefer being sad & rich than being sad & broke
so you got billions of dollars but you have cancer or diabetes or you lost your kid to -any disease- or you can't find a real friend to talk to will you be happy?
one of the best quotes:
"You are so poor that money is all you've got"
if you were poor you could have cancer or diabetes too.
if you were poor you might not find any real friends either
the point is money can and often does bring happiness
there is not a negative or nonexistant correlation between money + happiness (meaning more money equals less or no increase in happiness)
agreed on the religion part, not on the no such thing as karma thing.
To be 100% honest, my favorite thing since this year started is buying things for the first time in my life without asking how much it costs first. I've been helping one of my sisters financially since she's broke and it's the best feeling knowing my nephew is not going to have a deprived childhood due to lack of money like my sisters and I did growing up. The only dream I had as a child was to break the cycle of all the shit we went through as kids for our families and it's finally becoming a reality. Gonna stop talking now though cause I'm getting a bit nostalgic.
Karma is (caused by) something that's got done; it's an Action (following with a Reaction / an Effect) -- even the mind is constantly doing 'something' all the time! There is a lot more to this great phenomenon, but it can really be learned only through total sanity and focused thoughtfulness...
And Karma hasn't its origins in 'religion', it's a simple physics process, meta-physics if you wish to call it more appropriately (meta = beyond; a 'region' which extends beyond the 'limits' of present-day physics and its rules).
Religion, IMHO, has only used the word to express a certain important life-process (and of course, misused and over-twisted over the ages by certain 'holier-than-thou'-type people in the most advantageous influential positions).
In essence, Money isn't the cause of unhappiness or happiness, the way you go after it (ways of getting or not getting it, ways of using or not using it) causes the happiness or unhappiness part. Money is only a token which helps you to get certain types of 'happiness' (or 'unhappiness') in exchange.
Just My 2 Cents! May it bring lots of happiness to all concerned!

It does bring happiness, but it's found that when you exceed to make $75,000 a year, it has diminishing effects. I'm majoring in Psychology.
So you need more things to bring you happiness. But I think money does bring happiness because you can buy things that you like to collect OR do things that you like to do.
