I don't think one can quantify what truly makes one happy. Some are happier with less, some are happier with more. It's not a clear claim like you think it is.

Thank you for proving my point. Happiness can only be measured qualitatively, whereas money is measured quantitatively.

Anyone who bases their happiness on what they have, will never be happy. Happiness is from the heart, not the circumstances.
