Money can't buy true happiness, but it can buy pleasure.

Money cannot buy happiness. On the other hand, one needs to have money to legally obtain the things that do bring happiness and joy. You even need money to get a family. No one in their right mind would marry you, no matter how much they love you if the sum total of your families' estates is very negative.

I agree with you 100%. Reminded me of this:

"Aristotle believed that the reason why so many people are unhappy is that they keep foolishly confusing 'pleasure' for 'happiness.' 'Pleasure' is simply about immediate gratification -- of your body/ego. 'Happiness' is about seeking longterm growth for yourself as a thriving individual - and is about nourishing your soul/core self" (http://www.psychologytoday.com/...-tip-aristotle).

Money can't buy happiness on it's own, but good spending decisions can.

Having a lot of money wouldn't automatically bring me happiness; but it wouldn't automatically depress me, either.
