Money, do you know what money is? Some people say that money is happiness; it is everything in this world. But is it so? Even the wealthiest people are unhappy. After contemplation, I am of the opinion my friends that _ no money cannot buy us happiness. Hence, I would like to put my views on this in today’s debate.
Benjamin Franklin the Founding Fathers of United States said that: “Money has never made man happy, nor will it; there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.” By his words we can easily understand that money does not give us happiness.

What is Happiness?? Happiness is a state of mind. It can be achieved without money also. Happiness is when we are surrounded by the love and support of our family and true friends and are content with gifts God has blessed us with.

Money cannot get us True Friends, True Love, it cannot give us ‘Mental Peace’, Money can buy you medicine but not health. Money can buy you a bed but not sleep. It cannot help us in our spiritual path it cannot put us on a fast track in getting closer to GOD.

Yes agreed, money is important in life as we are able to buy all the physical comforts and luxuries in life with money. It can make us happy but temporarily. Money is transitory in nature it can come in one minute and go in another. Hence, People always strive to get more money to retain this temporary happiness and in process make their life stressful. They are always worried about protecting their money. Money corrupts people. It is the root cause of all evils.

A recent study also showed that – Materialistic people are less happy than those who did not care much money, their physical and emotional well being, relationship quality was better than money oriented people.

Happiness is when our heart is pure, when we are able to enjoy the finer things in life without getting involved in the mad rush to accumulate wealth. When consider money is a medium to fulfill our necessities and not as a source of happiness
From the above I would like to conclude that, money can’t buy us happiness. It will give us a very small amount of happiness if we use it properly. With money we may be able to buy things which will give us happiness, but that happiness will be very limited too.

Thank You

Do you think that getting agressive and calling people bossy will put you on a "fast track" in getting closer to GOD? I expect you to say sorry for that thoughtless comment!

i do not agree with your comment that money can buy medicine but not health for wont the medicine you bought cure your sickness and so make you healthy

Dear Ann I have written something for you on my homepage and can you please CHECK IT OUT? Dear friend Can you please stop being so aggressive? Why do you write such mean comments? And is it that you couldn't  find anything to argue about? Or is it a simple ploy to get many comments on your homepage. Oh! Or should it be homepageSSSSSSSSSSSSSS?

Well, in my point of view it completely depends upon the mentality, that people are thinking money can buy everything in this world. Most of the people are suffering from this kind of mentality, that they think they can buy everything with money even if happiness also. But, we have found thousands of examples in our surrounding which describes that money can't buy happiness for people. I completely appreciate the efforts of this article and also agreed with the fact that money is important in life but can't get everything for us. We choose our life as according to our own choice and interest.
