Proverbs 19:1 "Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool."

I've made lots of money before...and I was happy...but when it came to politics and money and back scratching... Well, let's just say I am much happier as a person working at the gym and Rainbow and bar. I'd rather work in those settings and feel that peace and hard work satisfaction and sense of purpose. Just sayin'.
