Money cannot make a toddler smile... something which I learned from my son today. All of 1.5 years, all he wants is his dad to be with him. He does not care how much money I make or can spend on him. This is MOST Definitely something that money cant buy. Not now, never ever.

1) What if there are some disease in your body ? Like diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Asthma, etc. ? What if one has blood Cancer ?

2) Yes, realized that money can even buy love. Though not the case with me, but realizing this hard way round.

3) Once a person has money, he will not need common sense. He has money do whatever he wants and cover up for his mistakes through money. And its quite easy in India.

What is fun or happiness in that ? If one can buy love, what is meaning of this ?

Money cannot undo something that has already happened .
It can make amends though!

It is the most influential thing on this planet today.

We have created the money and given it the power to influence our lives!!

Animals dont know what money is!!

Who is the idiot proposing that money can actually buy you love/affection??
What do you think love is?

Going around to discotheques or malls?
Or having one night stands? (Infact the one's driven by money are absolutely pathetic/insipid ones, its the ones driven by lust that are sizzling)
Or probably getting your name in the beneficiary list of a last will & testament.

Seems like most of the members here have just turned adolescent.
LOL!

that's because you are born with one, and there are none for sale. There is no market.

concept of money exists only WITH a market.

For everything else there is Mastercard (R)

Not to sound Cynical , but Money can buy ALL.

Most of the guys here talk about love from a Mother , Love from a Sibling , Love from one's child.

How many stories do you read everyday , where the Mother disowns the son for Money , Siblings fight it out in court for a piece of land , car and all other things money can buy , and the best , Son's/Daughters throwing out the parents cause they dont have enough Money.

You would not have a saying like 'Money makes the world go round' , if it were'nt true.

Generally the rich will tell you that Money is not everything cause they already have everything.

Ask the same to a Beggar or a person who has none and then you'll get the real answer.

Am done with the philosophy for the day , so please dont murder me.

Do not want to start a debate but people who believe in spirituality.. for them:

Money can not buy "Moksha" or eternal truth.

Its why there's even a song called Money Money Money!! Money comes close to buying everything except for a small minority of exceptions. Let's face it, if you're rich, you can be pretty darn happy in life.
