Have you seen the articles in NewsTIME and elsewhere WRT to a study
that shows that an income $75,000 per annum buys happiness for today's
average American? More money may increase a person's self-esteem, but
it doesn't increase happiness, essentially defined as having enough
money not to have to worry about not having enough money.
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
–Mark Twain
