Perspective, Courtesy Orson Welles

I think about the moment at the 1:30 mark of this clip a lot. Whenever I have regrets about how I've managed my career or how hard I've worked or how many hours I've spent on a treadmill, I think of this clip.
In my case, the old man wouldn't say, "You always just used money to..." He would say, "What have you done with your life? You've used it just to..." And I would interrupt, "to enjoy it". "To surround myself with people I love and who love me and just... enjoy it."
Thanks for the comforting little piece of this scene that lives on in the back of my brain, Orson.
I did not post this video. Whoever did so has my thanks, particularly for the appropriate title.
