Money is sweeter than honey” is a famous and self-explanatory quote. But is it really true?

Money is often seen by everyone as a panacea. Being rich is often assumed to be equal to being happy and content. But had that been the case, there wouldn’t have been so many celebrities(rich people) openly admitting their struggle with depression.

I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer”. These are some of the most famous lines of Jim Carrey, a comedian, who had to struggle with depression. A lot of us believe that had we been richer half our problems would disappear but, that’s not true. If our contentment and happiness are dependent on material things that we can buy, we’ll never be satisfied. There will always be something more to buy. 

What we, as humans, really crave are Love, health, honour, loyalty and a sense of purpose. No amount of money can buy all the above-mentioned. Sure, money may buy some of it, but there’s no surety that it will last. It is very much possible that you may find an Indian army jawan more content with his work than a wall-street banker who earns lakhs every day.

That being said, money does come with a lot of perks. Crying in a Ferrari is much better than crying on a cycle (though you’re still crying in both cases). Money can definitely buy you hundreds of luxuries. Money’s positive role in our lives cannot be neglected or denied. Without money, it is impossible to survive.


In conclusion, money should be treated as an important part of life. But, it should not be treated as the goal of life itself. The greed for money can never be satisfied and any efforts made to satisfy it are futile. Money is honey but too much honey gives you diabetes.

    Money is very important for a better life to people. without money nobody can survive, it’s essential to create a good future, because of that humans everyday think how they can make more and more money. the fact, is no enough money can buy good health and happiness for humanity, there are a lot of famous actors who live luxurious lives, they are rich but not happy and they may even end their lives because of depression. we can see a taxi driver more satisfied than a wall-street banker. Which shows that being rich doesn’t mean that’s the problem would disappear.
    Finally ,money is definitely an important part of life, but is not a goal and doesn’t make all the difference ,money is tasty like honey but too much of it can be unhealthy.

    No money and too much money ..both are threats to humans . Ofcourse money is an essential part of our life . But in today’s world people forget to love ,to care ,to smile in a rush to earn money .Everyday humans wake up with a question: Today how am I going to make money . They forget the fact that money can’t buy happiness and peace in life .
    Similarly without money , happiness and peace will be only in dreams . It will force humans to do frauds and criminal activities to earn money .
    So both factors infact have the ability to make a man to a beast .Earn money but sufficient to live a happy and healthy life.

    According to me Money is very essential in our life , without money nobody can survive . Money is essential but money is not everything , money is not the goal , we have to earn money to meet our daily life, but excessive money create the problem. rich and poor everybody has desire to fullfil their demand, many peoples are there they want to earn money by hook and crooke , they don’t care to do any unfair means. People cannot satisfy with money because of demand is increasing day by day, today buy something , tomorrow it is getting old so we have to buy further so there is no satisfaction. But something you cannot purchase by the money I e love, relationship, respect etc, we see some of the peoples sometimes earn lot of money but it cannot stay with him , within a short period he gets money less , he is in debt because of unlimited luxurious life style he has fallen in debt, may be he has to commit suicide. So money is essential but not everything in our life.
