    Here are a few proverbs that spring to mind.

    1. Money is the root of all evil. This one is very ancient.

    2. Money cannot buy happiness.

    3. Money may not buy happiness, but it makes unhappiness easier to bear.

    Money doesn't bring you happiness but I'd rather cry in a Ferrari!
