31 Money Quotes – Does Money Make You Happy?

There isn’t one quote answering straight to the question, “Does money make you happy?”

But don’t despair.

Below 31 money quotes are the closest answers you’ll ever need.

They’ll help you make up your mind about it.

Putting aside a happiness “issue” though, there is no denying that money can buy us two most important things we all want: choice and freedom.

And that’s where we’ll likely find happiness.

And I know one thing about money.

When you don’t have money, money is all you think about.

Just like if you’re hungry, you can’t think about anything else but food.

That’s exactly why in the Auschwitz concentration camp, food was the most popular topic amongst the holocaust victims, according to an Austrian psychologist and a Holocaust survivor, Viktor Frankl in his Man’s Search for Meaning.

Zig Ziglar said there is no denying that money is close to oxygen to navigate this world.

So, it’s best to realise its importance as early as we can, love and respect money, learn everything about it, become the master of a money game and learn to speak the right words to attract money.
