"Aim not for wealth, but intelligence and being wise. Money is just a piece of paper that has value only because we give it value. That’s the problem in this country nowadays, being poor is a crime. If you didn’t make stacks of money in your lifetime, you’re a failure. People idolize beauty, fame, wealth and power, when in reality, those are meaningless things in the big picture. Instead idolize being intelligent, passing your knowledge along. Idolize being kind and compassionate, helping your fellow human even if you had very little. Idolize strength, defeating all odds to accomplish something. Don’t let society tell you you’re a failure because you’re not wealthy, as long as you were kind, strong, tried your best and always had good values, you were a successful person. Don’t let greed tear you down. Be yourself, be strong, be kind."
