Money Isnt Everything Essay

I think money not everything but that is most important other thing we need for our lives.
If you think about that a little , you know that when you havent health in your live what will happen?
I think money is necessary for me but not all of my purpose in my live.

"With money you can buy a house but not a home;With money you can buy a clock but not time; With money you can buy a bed but not sleep; With money you can buy a book but not knowledge; With money you can buy a doctor but not health; With money you can buy a position but not respect; With money you can buy blood but not life; With money you can buy sex but not love."

I think that money is very important thing in our lives.
Without money we are not able to live... If we would be able to live without the money - why do we work, what for? I don;t belive that some people work for their pleasure only... We work, we spent 8 hours or more in a work, we don't like our bosses, our boring offices - but we go there every day to earn money! of course money is not a thing that can make us happy, but we feel secure, safe and calm when we know that our bank account isn't empty...

Money isn't everything but... there are many but's... A simple example: witout money you can't have an internet, so you can't develop your language, what reduces to your unknown, and so on...
It should be enough money to study, to develop abilities and not to worry about the future.

Money isn't everything: Family, friends and a fulfilling job all count more towards happiness, survey claims

If you think that winning the lottery will leave you feeling contented for the rest of your life, think again.

Money can buy you only a little happiness, says the biggest survey of its kind ever held.

It found that while wealth improves quality of life and 'life satisfaction', it has only a small impact on day-to-day mood. 

Rich, but not necessarily happy: Wealth can have little impact on day-to-day mood, the survey found

The poll of 136,000 people in 132 countries found that happiness was much more strongly linked to being respected and the sense of having control over life.

Support of family and friends and working at a fulfilling job were also far more important than income, the researchers found.

The survey, carried out by Gallup and published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, is one of the most detailed polls of its kind.

Dr Ed Diener, who led the study at the University of Illinois, said: 'We knew from earlier research that money to some degree is associated with happiness, although the effects are often fairly weak.

'So the answer to the question, "Does money make us happy?" was, "Yes, a bit". But we see a much more interesting pattern than that simple answer.

'It's pretty shocking how small the correlation is with positive feelings and enjoying yourself.'

The pollsters used telephone surveys in richer countries, and door-to-door interviews in poorer parts of the world, to ask about income, standard of living, housing conditions and diet.

Respondents were invited to evaluate their life on a scale of zero to ten, and to

describe the negative and positive emotions experienced the previous day.

The poll also asked if they felt respected, whether they had family and friends they could count on in a crisis and how free they felt to choose their daily activities.

The links between money and happiness were the same for young and old, different social classes, men and women, and town and country dwellers.

Dr Diener found that life satisfaction rises with personal and national income. But positive feelings were much more strongly linked with other factors.

'Everybody has been looking at just life satisfaction and income,' he said. 'And while it is true that getting richer will make you more satisfied with your life, it may not have the big impact we thought on enjoying life.'
