"Can't buy me love." I believe that if I had millions of dollars, I would still live in a shack, find pleasure in the most mundane activities, and maintain the same relationships. Maybe the one thing I would change is my reliance on employment--I would retire. And I would probably travel more often. I know someone who has been financially successful. They are driven towards acquiring financial wealth. They have a large house, lease new cars every year, boats and many other toys. I admire their focus on a single objective. I don't judge them because of it, yet it's not the path I would travel. I think for me money has been a necessity but not an obsession, and if I were to measure my wealth, it would be my general well-being over the years and the time I spent with the people closest to me. Is that philosophical view? I don't know.
