Thoughts of a Dying Billionaire

“One day, they will all know my name.”

“They do, sir. You are the most successful businessman in all the world.”

“Oh yes, so I am. Well then one day, they will all respect me.”

“This, too, is already the case. Every company worth their mettle wants to do business with you.”

“Hm. In that case, one day, I shall be rich.”

“Ah yes. Well then, Watford, perhaps one day I shall be happy.

“Perhaps, sir.”
