            <p>“Having money, power, and respect pacifies the ego only temporarily and does nothing to relieve the deeper feeling of emptiness. We’re all sold on this idea that wholeness can be bought, married into, or wished real hard for, but the more substantial definition of success requires a lot more than just worldwide recognition and acquiring things.”</p>
