money can't buy happiness?

[Lying in bed before lights out, E asks about university and courses you can take.  He says he wants to take a music class, an art class, and also be a doctor and (not "or") "maybe also an engineer."  He wants to do his art as a hobby and also do something that he can "make a lot of money at", he says, "like maybe being in a rock band."]

E:  Except, money isn't the most important thing.  It's not what makes you happy.  [Pause, wheels churning].  Yeah, the reason for that is that you can't buy happiness with money.  You can't buy family.

Me:  Yeah, or friends, and family and friends are what is most important in life.

E:  Well, except that's not totally true, because you can actually buy family, like if you had enough money, you could pay someone to have a baby for you.

And I guess he's right!
