With a lot of money I could self-fund my own political campaign and have a strong chance of winning, I could travel extensively and meet lots of people which increases the chance I can meet some I like and who likes me, have a nice boat and since I love the sea so that would be nice, not have to worry about a lot of problems which obviously cause lots of stress since they are financial in nature.
So really... maybe it's true for SOME people like if you're rich and miserable, but it's a dumb saying and I don't think it's true in most cases.

I think that money makes life easier and therefore takes a lot of stress out of it but the true happiness is from something else... People living in poverty tend to have higher divorce rates than others and tend fall in a rutt, like a revolving door downslope because money is a big issue. People that are wealthier dont have to worry about ends meeting therefore less stress causeing more happiness! You have to be happy with life cause if you aren't, no amount of money will make you happy (thats my moto)1
