That's like asking...
"What is the smartest thing that ever came out of a woman's mouth?"

What Is the Best Thing Money Can't Buy? or can? LOL it can't buy love but .....

Falling water is nice, I have always liked niagara falls.
For the former, no.
For the latter, yes.
I would hope so.
I recently found myself in a position of awfulness caused by a nature event where due to conditions out of my control I was in a situation experiencing what perhaps poor people might have to deal with because of lack of funds, fortunately I did not have to stay in that condition or situation but it made me think about things I take for granted, and the fact that because I was able to come up with money I lifted myself and loved one out of the situation.
Others however may have had to ride the storm so to speak and live without basic things we take for granted daily.
In this instance I can honestly say having money made me happier then having none but I thought to myself how do others who have nothing feel happy?
What are the best things money can't buy ?
Even being happy in a loving relationship I would have still felt miserable to stay in that bad situation that I'd only experienced for a couple of days.
If you were an African hunger-gatherer, sure.
But here in America, since you need money for food, clothing, and shelter, then no.
It can buy you experiences, but you can also get them for free.
