“… It's a Catch-22 because in our heart we know that money can't buy us happiness. Yet we live in a culture where it is consumer-driven, where money can buy you happiness. I'm not criticizing our consumer-driven culture. Capitalism is the best form of an economic system that has ever been formed. What I'm suggesting and encouraging the reader to do is look for opportunities to live their rich life in a way that gives meaning to their life in their communities, their schools, their families, and especially in their own self.” – Bill Schultheis, excerpt from interview with The Motley Fool.
