For the Fool

"This is for the fool from the lowest of the low, the one who never had the best of everything and now feels superior to everyone because he or she has risen to fame and achieved wealth."

Money is something you make. It's a privilege when you have it. Whether you're born into it, acquire it through marriage, or earn it through hard labour. Don't come from the gutter and lack the capacity to relate to or help the people who are still there just because you are now at the top. Denying your roots does not alter your realities. Instead, it can be the perfect pretext for your downfall later in life. Be the sage who rises from the slums with a keen sense. Nothing lasts a lifetime."
