It is no doubt hard for the working man to follow this quest, but experience has shown that it is hard for rich people to follow it also. The only difference is that the particular difficulties--such as lack of time--which stand in his way do not stand in theirs. On the other hand, the particular difficulties which stand in their way do not stand in his. However, it is a fact that the hindrances which a poor man has to face are on the whole greater than those which the rich have to face.
