The point was in itself money cannot buy you happiness. It wasn't the money that brought the happiness but the successful operation. The money was simply a necessity to get to that happiness.:)

I see that, of course, but...

one cannot deny money 'helps' in certain cases,
we all realise deeper meanings, ie,
if one were looking at a beautiful picture,
you could never purchase the mindset that painted it -
granted -
the emotions which were awakened which helped
breath life into it..

but later, say at an auction
if someone wanted this treasure enough

'money'
can help in bringing the dream about.

Good then we are in agreement. The wisdom in the quote is that if you belief money itself will bring you happiness you will surely be disappointed. Happiness CAN be a byproduct of money but if you would take money out of the equation like let's say gifts (some doctors do surgery for free or a painting given by a loved one) the person will be equally as happy if not more. As archaic as it might sound if we went back to bartering would it really be money or individual talents/skills that bring on the happiness?:)

I love argument, I love debate. I don't expect anyone just to sit there and agree with me, that's not their job.

Baby

© Mary K. Mwadzuya

Last night, as you slept,
I heard you sigh,
And to your bed I crept,
And watched you sleep.

I kissed you,
For, oh I love you so,
You are too young to know it now
But some day you shall know

Some times when in the dark
Where I sit and weep
Your eyes shall see the light
Calm in eternal sleep
For, Oh I love you so but
You are too young now to know it now
But someday you shall know

The speechless lips, the wrinkled brow
The patient smile may show
You are too young to know it now
But some day you shall know

Looking backward into the years
And I see me here tonight
See my angel, how my tears are falling as I write and feel once more upon your brow
The kiss of long ago
You are too young to know it now
But some day you shall know.
