[03:57.38]But this does not mean he has no worrie [04:01.63]On the contrary, the average millionaire worries constantly about his businesse [04:08.69]His great wealth also makes it difficult for him to be happy and comfortable with other peopl [04:16.86]Are they friendly because they like hi [04:19.81]Or do they pretend to like him because they want his mone [04:24.96]John Smith says he feels very sorry for millionaires [04:29.64]who, instead of being masters of their wealth, are slaves of their million [04:36.37]In one way, however, John Smith always behaves exactly like a millionair [04:43.07]I mean he never has any money and generally manages to persuade someone else to pay for his drinks. [04:52.75]But unlike other very rich men, he gives back good value for mone [04:59.48]He is full of jokes and fu [05:02.90]An evening spent with him is not chea [05:06.36]because he is usually very thirsty, but he always makes people happ [05:12.23]He does not give much thought for tomorro [05:15.43]He is the happiest man I have even me [05:19.36]Whenever I meet him, he tells me [05:22.99]"In money I am not rich, but in peace of mind I am a millionaire [05:30.19]And then the world's richest, penniless man usually adds, with a smil [05:37.46]"Do you have time for another drink?"
