Both.  Being the former does not preclude you from being the latter.

He gets a high five from me.  He traded in his 67 year old wife for a hot 22 year old Russian model.

When your home country (hungary) is taken over when you are 7 and you are forced to speak Russian. Then it is taken over when you are 14 and you are forced to speak German. Then you leave when you are 17 with the clothes on your back and a few dollars in your pocket (note: probably not dollars) because your country is in the middle of a violent deadly war. All this has an effect on a young man.

For George, he decided he needed to make money so he would have a say in the political process...this drove him to become one of the best people in the world at making money. Although, now, he only cares about is politics.

Anyway, I met George a few years ago and this is what he told me.

I am reading one of his books, and he makes some very insightful points, and loves himself the whole time. I guess if I were one of the wealthiest people in the world I would love myself too.
 
Actually, I already love myself. What am I talking about?
