By creating your own world in which you can enjoy your talents and abilities.

Those who forsake humanity in order to achieve supposed greatness are usually unhappy in the knowledge that they can trust nobody and befriend only those they can buy.

What is the point in being all powerful if you are powerless to make people like you unless you buy them.

Being ruthless means being greedy and selfish. Sure I want to be rich but not by the bodycount.

By ensuring you maintain ‘Principle and Integrity’ people will want to know you. Your words will be desired for their ‘ring of truth’.

When enough people want to know you because of your honesty and search for Justice and Equality then your World will have more value than that of the richest man in the World.

Being rich is no doubt better than being poor but being rich and dying alone – is that what life is all about?
