My house is shabby, but it is comfortable. There is no end to wanting - after the Ferrari and the Birkin bag, what's next ? Neither an Aston Marin nor a Hermes Birkin can make us truly happy and contented. They are like dust, a fog obscuring the true meaning of life, and can be blown away in the twinkling of an eye.

How much happiness can materialistic things give you ? How long will it last ?
Such wise words from a person who is born from a noble family and holds such a high position.
Time to reflect.
