Although getting rich will not necessarily make you happy, it is often said that it is better to be unhappy in comfort rather than in poverty. Having money can’t buy good health or good friends but being sick and alone without recourse to the help money could bring can be pretty miserable. These are ideas typically expressed in the various internet sites featuring happiness quotes and in many newspapers and magazine articles on the same theme.

So now that it has been decided that it is better to have money than not, the question which looms is How to become rich? Hard work is an oft quoted answer but by itself it will not suffice. One must be a good economist, a saver, a do it yourself expert and even maybe a bit of a gambler though the latter is not always recommended! Alternatively, of course, you might contrive to marry money. This is often the case in Asian and other societies where ‘arranged marriages’ still predominate. However you need something to offer in return even if it is only a noble name and lineage.

Reading happiness quotes is rather like consulting your horoscope in the daily newspaper. There is always something for everyone with at least a 50% chance of being right. The state of being happy is generally decried as being ephemeral although idyllic in its moment of passing. Like suddenly acquiring money you haven’t had to work for too much happiness is not really considered to be good for you unless derived from selfless sacrifice.
