    Re: Money as solution/no solution to all problems

    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.

    I heard somewhere that if you work too much you do not have time to make money.
