It is thoughtless of the poor to say that practice of philosophy is only for those who have the money, the leisure, and the freedom to spare. It is equally thoughtless of the rich to say that the practice is for those who need philosophy's consolatory service in their squalor and poverty. The truth is that neither the millionaire nor the pauper, nor even all those classes in between, can escape from the need of philosophic practice; without it, as Buddha pointed out, they are doomed to suffer.
