My father was driven by greed to collect money. He made money simply because he wanted more of it. When I was about 15 my father's company almost went under. My little sister had a life threatening illness, and the only thing that could save her was an expensive treatment. And instead of forking over the money to save her life, he threw his money into the company and as a result it flourished. Do you know what my first big purchase was after I made my fortune? I bought the company right out from under him, and I took it over. I basically stole everything from him, just like he did to my sister.
