SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V.
Hi, can someone check this?
Possuntne pecūnia ōtiumque cūrās vītae hūmānae superāre?
Are money and leisure able to overcome the anxieties of human life?

Also, if I wanted to say, "multos gratias et valete bene", could I write it as "multos gratias valete beneque"?

MULTOS GRATIAS ET VALETE BENE,

Your translation is very accurate. :)

As for your farewell, multus must agree with gratias so it should be multas gratias. Also, if you were going to put the -que in there, it would be at the end of valete, not after bene.

cura ut valeas amice
flebile nescio quid queritur lyra, flebile lingua murmurat exanimis, respondent flebile ripae
