Go to now, you rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come on you.…
Mr. Jay Gould, the American millionaire, thus confided his woes to a reporter: "I am kept on the drive now from early in the morning till late at night, without any let up, day in and day out. The money I've made has enslaved me. With financial success, cares, and responsibilities, and trials outnumbered go close together; and there is no escaping the embarrassments and troubles. A rich man ought to be judged pretty generously. He has a good deal more to contend with than people who are not rich generally suppose. Food and clothes and a place to sleep, that's all a man gets in this world, and I don't care how rich he is. The boy on the farm, the man who isn't driven to death to look after property that is in his name, they are the happiest — or ought to be."
