No it just can make life easier. I know plenty of miserable people with money. Happiness is a state of being. A choice. It is not an end game.

I voted that money would make me happier;

BUT - my actual belief is that it won't make me happier it will just allow me to afford things that could improve my quality of life. If that makes sense, which I believe it does.

Overall you can't buy happiness it's an emotion as we all know but I do firmly believe with the right funding and mindset you can improve your life in many ways that will equal to happiness.

Money wouldn't make me happier but it sure would cut down on the worry. I opened my light bill this month and about passed out! $280! Damn Texas heat.

Money can't buy happiness, but I've yet to see a river of tears flowing from the Porsche dealership.

Unfortunately I'm going to say yes because I really need it right now! The reality is that when you have money there is less stressed therefore more happiness.My happiness is love but I'd be happier if I can pay through school, lawyers etc
It makes life easier

If it's your own, sure... wealth gained through another, hard no!

Money seems to be the root of all evil. besides having it doesn't make you any happier but it would make life much easier. Friends and family are what makes a person happy, without people in your life life becomes meaningless.

666 is evil, so the root of all evil is,

25.8069758011.

Happiness can not be provided by anything or anyone other than yourself. If you are not happy, nobody else can make you happy. Now with that said, I would much rather be crying in a Ferrari.
