This sounds lame

But money can't buy you happiness.

And it has been established that once you have a certain amount of money, more money doesn't make you much happier.
"People are the water, the ruler is the boat; water can carry the boat, but it can also capsize it."

-- Li Shimin (2nd Tang Emperor, "Taizong")

Although money can't buy happiness, it has been pretty well established that lack of money can cause unhappiness, stress, and health problems.  The relative position within a society seems to be more important than the absolute level of wealth; that is, feeling poor is worse than being poor.

Money is important to a limit... in my case for example, I wouldn't want it to limit me into anything, but I wouldn't marry a guy for it only either... I f I want money, I try my best to make it... BUT

I probably would prefer money to love (I know, I feel real bad now-hehe).

No money+ love= unhappiness
No love+ Money= some happiness (ehehe)

can money buy anything

The only thing money can't buy is poverty; if you try very hard you could probably buy that too. Although it has been said that money cannot buy you happiness, it sure makes unhappiness bareable.

LOVE??? MONEY??? - Love wrapped in a newspaper is not as enticing as one in a Brand Name package. Yes my friends, money is the packaging.

Money is not just that paper you carry with you, but in comes in the form of friendship, favors, politeness, good manners, etc.: Money is any medium of exchange where you expect something in return for your efforts, even kindnes and sharity are money - they pay you in the form of that good feeling you get inside when you share with the less fortunate. Yes, my friends we cannot do anything without money, even dying costs.
