Amar's Philosophy

It’s a myth that More Money = Happiness.
Yes, we have all heard that it is better to cry in a BMW than cry on the road. However, what matters at that point is that you are crying and unhappy. Your location is not relevant, you are just like the other person crying on the road. The point is that if “More Money = Happiness” were indeed true, the richest people would also be the happiest; the most seemingly beautiful and rich people would not be depressed.
