Not poor

Jose “Pepe” Mujica

“I’m not poor, poor are those who think i’m poor. I have few things, it’s true, the minimum, but only so that I can be rich.”

“I want to have time so that I can dedicate it to the things that motivate me. And if I had a lot of things I would have to tend to them and I wouldn’t be able to do the things I really like. That is true freedom. austerity,  small consumption.  so I can dedicate time to the things I truly enjoy. If not,  I would have to hire a maid, and then I would have someone monitoring things inside the house. And if I have a lot of things I have to dedicate myself to looking out for them so that no one takes them. No thanks, with three little pieces I have enough. We dust them off with the broom between my wife and I; and thats it, it’s over. Then we really have time to dedicate to the things which truly inspire us. We are not poor.”
