Why not? I make it a point to live within my means, but also LIVE. I know too many people whose entire life is focused on what they cannot afford, therefore living a very miserable and deprived life of their own making. A little bit of entrepreneurial spirit would free them. I do not do what I am doing to get rich, it is more about personal fulfillment that cannot be had working 7-3 MF for someone else.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin 1775
Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power.
Benjamin Franklin Poor Richard's Almanac1738
