What should everyone know about money?

It's no damn good. You know that's what my movies are about, really? I had a theme: My movies are about love or money. Love or success. Love or society crowning you. I boil it down to love and companionship. That seems to be sacred and much more important than success. At some point in your life, you got to say, "I really can't go after money. I got to go after other things. It's important, and we completely lose sight of that. When you're starting out, it's fine, you want to make enough so that you can feed your family. It makes sense. But you get to when you're just wasting your time and making a lot more than you need. These days, I'm Mr. Turn-down. I said, "I got enough. I got enough. I'm not going to sacrifice time, which, is a much more important commodity than money."
