Fame and fortune

MANY people chase fame and fortune as their ultimate objective in life. But to those who have experienced it, they realise it’s not all it seems. Jim Carrey once said: “I think everybody should get rich and famous, and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.”
