Money can’t buy me love, but it can buy happiness
And this final note, if you don’t care too much for money, ’cause money can’t buy you love — well then, what if it could buy you happiness?

Economists surveyed almost half a million Americans about their happiness and satisfaction with their lives. The effect of money on happiness capped out at around $75,000 in annual income. But the overall sense of success continued — the more money they made. Let’s all hope the corner office is listening.
