Quote of the Day

The poor little rich kids syndrome reiterated:

“When you grow up in a wealthy family, it’s much much harder to feel that what you’ve achieved is on your own. And it’s much much harder for people to think that what you’ve achieved is on your own. So my children have a bit of a disadvantage — yes, they have money and they have a good education and so forth — but they have to achieve things on their own. And it’s a much harder thing for them to do that. And so I try to let them succeed on their own. But it’s very difficult for a parent to want to just say to their child, ‘Do what you can and I’m not going to help you.’ Because you want to help your child, but you want the child to be independent and strong enough so they can achieve on their own.” - Billionaire private equity chief David Rubenstein, the co-founder of Carlyle Group, whose net worth is estimated at $2.9 billion. 

All together now ...awwwwwwwwwwww, diddums, the hard-done by wee souls.
