can buy happiness
, though it is not how most people
Buying things for yourself doesn't make you happy, it just gives you
possessions. These are things to play with, to show off, and boast
about. They occupy your mind - pass the boredom. They are statements
of worth. However, they don't provide happiness.
Ironicly, the way to buy happiness, is to buy things for other people.
How much happier are you after buying a present for someone and seeing
them happy to receive it rather than going out and buying something
that you want?
