I’d been thinking recently …
…about this story.
At a party given by a billionaire on Shelter Island, Kurt Vonnegut informs his pal, Joseph Heller, that their host, a hedge fund manager, had made more money in a single day than Heller had earned from his wildly popular novel 'Catch-22' over its whole history. Heller responds, Yes, but I have something that he will never have ... enough.
I don’t remember why I was thinking about it, but it had come up several times and I wondered if I could find the quotation somewhere.
I looked at my desktop telephone
Behind it, about two feet from my head as I stand at my computer desk, there it was:
|Two Men With an Answer|
I think this is very wise indeed.
(BTW, if you don’t now who John Bogle was, you should.)
(Joseph Heller may have been quoting JS Bach’s (Ich habe genug](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ich_habe_genug,_BWV_82). I tend to hear that phrase to mean what we mean when we say “I’ve had enough”, “J’en ai ras le bol”, etc. I think Heller’s meaning - I have sufficiency - is closer to Bach’s.)
