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.
I wanted to become
a doctor but could not as I cannot bear to see people wincing in pain.
a lawyer but could not as I cannot argue well enough to say that I am right even though i am wrong.
a compounder/pharmacist but could not as I cannot understand what doctors write in the prescriptions (apart from RX) and the doctor’s letterhead.
an IAS officer but could not as I am not good in dealing with politicians.
a cookery expert but could not as I would mess up the masalas and salt/sugar.
an accountant but could not as I cannot do golmaal in the accounts if my boss wants me to.
a teacher but could not as I think what if my students ask me questions that I am unable to answer.
