our Holy Book
The Torah says a very imp thing: YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU. You die and all that remains is your good deeds before you go before the heavenly tribunal and they can't be bribed.

Very good comment.
Well said. The truth is rarely expressed so short and precisely. Thank you for reminding us all of the truth.

When I grow up
I am 60 years old and have many jobs in my like. I always wanted to be a writer. Not a rich and famous writer, just a good one.
I just published my first children's book. It is never too late to remember what we want to be when we grow up.

There's a limit to how much money one needs or can use
There's a movie with the same theme, even though a lot of the subject matter is a bit improper for aish. If you've seen "Pretty Woman" you'll recognize the same theme as this movie. I think most of us would disagree with Wallis Simpson's comment, "You can never be too rich or too thin." I think she's wrong on both counts. Rich might seem nice, but there's a limit to how much money a person can need or enjoy. You end up giving it away (which is good) but maybe it's better to not take it away in the first place from the little guys you end up having to help.
