Default Things MONEY can't buy

Hey Guys,

Let share what you think of things which money can't buy.

One is LOVE for sure , as the movies, book, people say.

But say money can buy a car, but the pleasure and Passion of having it can't be purchased.

You can buy an excellent ICE, but u can't buy an ear to Music.
Lets share what you think about it. it can be anything not specific to Automobiles.

Who says money cannot buy love? People are so darn matreialistic these days they'll love you for being rich!

Money can buy :

Love
Respect
Fear
Loyalty
Film Awards and many more things.

Well for a few million dollars you can have your body stored in a state of cryogenic suspension and then be revived once we have developed the technology.

And yes I read in the papers a few months ago that scientists are on the verge of a major nanotech breakthhrough. One would have microscopic robots enter the body and slow down the effects of aging on the body. This is suposed to increase your life span by a couple of hundred years. (I know it sounds outrageous but this is what was reported). If and when this technology is available I'm sure it will cost a fortune and only a very few people would be able to afford it.

And as of right now money can buy one a new kidney if required!

Even the free things dont come for free.
You buy something, and you get something with it.
You spend money to buy something, you get something with that, which you dont want, and they call it FREE.

Hey Actually money can buy everything that are up for sale.

Be it anything - Car, House, Love, Respect, Freedom, Education anything, even Life
If there are people to sell it, money can buy it. And there are people who sell anything and everything for money - THey sell thier love, respect, diginity what not ?

What money can't buy is based on each induviduals preferences and what he values most.

Hence all your discussions cannot hold good for all.
Yes, they are majority are like what you guys listed, but then they are not 'universal'

Apologies, i have sounded rude
