Nor do I. I’ve seen money corrupt good people. I just want enough to live comfortably, pay my bills, and keep my fridge stocked. That’s it. I don’t care for millions in my account. I tried fame when I was in theater and….yeah, hated the attention. I like being in the background or in the shadows.

The truest maxim I’ve ever learned is: “Follow the money.” The history of every country, the backstory of every invention, the quest for every power ALWAYS goes back to money.But I notice that people with LOTS of it are no happier than I am. And the more they accrue, the unhappier they seem. they get so paranoid about losing it. . .
