Money can buy happiness, sort of
A recent Princeton University study found that “happiness” peaks when a person’s income is about $75,000. But you have to make a whole lot more to actually feel “rich”.
Another study found that 42% of millionaires don’t feel wealthy. It turns out, you have to have about $7.5 million before you can feel both happy and rich.
Just once, we would like the chance to prove that money can’t make us happy.
Herewith, some of our favorite sayings about money and happiness…
Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to shop.
You can’t buy happiness, but you can rent it for awhile.
Money can’t buy you love, but it puts you in a better bargaining position.
You can’t buy love, but you can pay heavily for it
Rich or poor, it’s nice to have money.
We have never been in a situation where having money made it worse.
Money will not make you happy, and happy will not make you money.
And, finally, in the words of the late, great Elizabeth Taylor:
Money is the best deodorant.
Unfortunately, we Record Bin Roulette guys have spent our money on drinking, women and gambling. The rest we spent foolishly.
