Poverty and covetousness are great motivators. Without these, too
many otherwise productive people would waste their lives with video
games and daytime TV. How many of us would ever have bothered
to learn programming if not to advance our careers? How many of
those who would have programmed anyway would have gotten as
good at it as we are had not it advanced our careers? Think of
poverty as a drill sergeant: in your face for sure, but he ultimately
benefits you by teaching you to get with the program. So look
alive there, soldier, move it! spike
