Money should not be always the prinicipal Aim

It is physically impossible for a well educated, intellectual, or brave man to make money the chief object of his thoughts just as it is for him to make his dinner the principal object of them. All healthy people like their dinners, but their dinner is not the main object of their lives. So all healthy minded people like making money ought to like it and enjoy the sensation of winning it; it is something better than money. A good soldier for instance mainly wishes to do his fighting well. He is glad of his pay-very properly so and justly grumbles when you keep him 10 tears without it-till, his main mission of life is to win battles, not to be paid for winning them. So of clergymen. The clergyman’s object is essentially baptize and preach not to be paid for preaching. So of doctors. They like fees no doubt-ought to like them; yet if they are brave and well-educated the entire object to their lives is not fees. They on the whole, desire to cure the sick; and if they are good doctors and the choice were fairly to them, would rather cure their patient and lose their fee than kill him and get it. And so with all the other brave and rightly trained men; their work is first, their fee second-very important always; but still second.

    You are right that always not thought about money but without money you cant not do anything.

    If needs and wants are satisfied, provided a limit is set, then money takes a back seat and satiating the pride and ego of self takes prominence.
