Not quite right. Money would have value, the not so desirable object would have no value.

Also, the statement money cannot buy you happiness is also not quite true. Statistically, people who are better off than their neighbors are found to be happier than there neighbors.

I know it sounds geeky, but I have studied this type of thing for a looonnnnng time.

Well, it really depends on how your perspective of it.

To me, money isn't everything. Sure, you can buy a few things that make you happy, but will it buy friendship? Unless you paid the person, (that's pret-ty low there.) Will it buy love and affection? No? (unless you paid for a prostitute with herpes.) I always think of the girls in My Sweet 16 on MTV when it comes to low life money wanters who have all the money in the world. They get all pissy if their mom brought the WRONG car, or get mad if the car comes late or brought the wrong person who's gonna sing. Nothing can satisfy people like them. Nothing. Because they think money is the only thing that will bring that happiness.

Money isn't much too me. It buys things I need to survive.

You can't say happiness without saying penis.
Just saying.

I'll take that as a response to me, it's hard for me to elaborate my philosophy on money but... In the simplest term I can manage, money is valuable because about everything is worth money. We think about money now so it has value. Since I can't put my thoughts properly, I'll quote something from Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun.


MAMA: Son—how come you talk so much 'bout money?
WALTER: Because it is life, Mama!
MAMA: Oh—So now it's life. Money is life. Once upon a time freedom used to be life—now it's money. I guess the world really do change ...
WALTER: No—it was always money, Mama. We just didn't know about it.
MAMA: No ... something has changed. You something new, boy. In my time we was worried about not being lynched and getting to the North if we could and how to stay alive and still have a pinch of dignity too.... Now here come you and Beneatha—talking 'bout things we ain't never even thought about hardly, me and your daddy. You ain't satisfied or proud of nothing we done. I mean that you had a home; that we kept you out of trouble till you was grown; that you don't have to ride to work on the back of nobody's streetcar—You my children—but how different we done become.


Money has became our life, that's why it's important or has value. If pebbles were "money", then they would have value.


I think I should stop with my inexplicable nonsense.

Of course it isn't everything. We had things before we had money.

Money can't buy the love of my life.
Simple as that.
Happiness to me is being with her.
But money can assist in ways of getting to her, but it wont ever win her heart.
Overall, I think money is like most of the things in life. We want it, we take it, and we abuse it. But after a while, when we get used to it, take it for granted - it gets boring, it's nothing special, and that's when you feel hollow.

Money isn't everything, but money is a factor that helps make a lot of things.

come back to me when your not living with people that 10,000$ in debt and only make enough to cover the cost of living each month. I would do anything for a job and extra cash.

Money isnt everything to me. I guess it just depends on the person. I really need money right now, but thats not the most important thing in my life. I put love and family first.
