 tells us that Nobody’s perfect. But only the rich get away with thinking that their luck and their flaws are actually strengths. (Hat tip to Mich Kabay for flagging the article.)

Speaking as one who is in no danger of becoming a millionaire but who is lucky enough to need to work only at stuff I enjoy working on…

I’m reminded of ‘Bubbles’ Rothermere, who (if I remember correctly) told a newspaper that the hardest-working people she knew were millionaires. Far be it from me to suggest that she was wrong, but that tells us a lot more about the late Viscountess Rothermere and the circles she moved in than it does about people who work hard but unaccountably fail to be millionaires.
