I came across an article in one of the CNN archives about an Interview one of their Reporters had with Bill Gates. The question the reported asked Bill Gates was :- "You dropped a $10 bill on the floor. Will you bend down and pick it up. Coz I think the time you will spend picking up the $10 Bill is worth 1000 times more than a $10 Bill". And Bill Gates supposedly gave a modest answer....... saying "Yes", I will pick it up. What you have right now is more secure than what you expect. What do you guys feel about this answer. Was Bill Gates being "Modest"...... will he actually pick it up or just walk off?

he says like a man that knows the value of a dollar and maybe that is why he has so much. Have you ever noticed how people who say they have no money waste the money that they have?

Yes.... I agree with you. Bill Gates was not born rich. He reached these heights all by himself....... and such people will always value money and not show no disrespect towards it.

he is not modest regarding picking up the money but a firm believer of "a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush"
