Chuck Thacker once said something to me which made a big impression.

He said that he was rich because he could buy stuff he wanted without having to worry too much. By that standard I am also rich, though I am certain that in USD terms I am not worth as much as he; likewise he didn't have anywhere near as many megabucks as other members of our then employers, MSFT.
