O dinheiro não traz felicidade, manda buscar.

 

"Not a literal translation, but "Money can´t buy happiness, it can free you from some worries..."

 

 

And freed from worries you can go in pursuit of happiness.

------------------------------------------------------------

From what I read somewhere else, I conclude:

    In fact money can't buy you happiness, but maybe money can, or should have something to do with happiness...it can only buy lots and lots of cool things that make you happy.

     Wealth/money does buy freedom from some worries: adequate food, shelter, health care and a certain degree of social acceptance.

      The point is you read and hear about all the rich and famous people who are or were not happy, but you read or hear about the ones that are happy? this usually doesn´t make the news.
