Money cannot make one happy

Эссе (сочинение) по английскому языку на тему: Money cannot make one happy


Everyone wants to be rich and happy. Some people see the direct connection between money and happiness, others consider them to be two different things.

In my opinion, money cannot make anyone happy. What is more, money can rob a person of happiness. Firstly, the more money you have the more negative feelings you excite in your neighborhood. For example, people may envy you for your wealth and use every chance to play a low-down trick with you. Secondly, much money makes you uneasy about its safety. Well-to-do people are always a tempting target for criminals of any kind. Their houses are robbed, their bank accounts are hacked, etc. It is often the case that no protective measures can help.

But there are people who believe that money brings happiness. If you earn a good living, you can buy more things, for example, a luxurious car or house. You can travel all over the world and see a lot of places of interest. All this makes your life brighter and more enjoyable.

Nevertheless I cannot agree with the reasons of my opponents. The fact is that happiness is what people feel, it is not what they have. A luxurious car or house can give you delight for a limited period of time, and then you get accustomed to all your things. As regards travelling, it makes you tired rather than happy.

In conclusion, money is an important part of everyone’s life, but it not the key element of happiness. I feel pity for people who badly need much money to be happy.
