Can money really buy happiness?

Okay, so we have all heard this question before. I know that for a fact we're all told that money doesn't buy happiness. But when you actually think about it can it? With money you can buy so many things you want that could make you happy. But you can't buy the fundamentals in life. I just want people's opinions on this cause I always hear such contradicting answers.

  • Apr 29 2013: depends on what you buy with it??

    happiness is a state of mind. you can buy it, realize it, feel it, meditate on it, crib about not having it... but it is a form of chemical equilibrium.

    happiness can be attained, not purchased. it is a state of existence :)
