Why do you want to win the lottery?
Me? I will defer to a scene from the show “Castle” where the following exchange occurred during a discussion about coming into a large sum of money:
Beckett: You said earlier that money doesn’t change us it just magnifies who we are. What did your windfall magnify in you?
Castle: My inner child at first, kinda like Hixton. Private jets, five star everything. But then I realized the only luxury I truly care about is freedom, freedom to write, spend time with Alexis. Having that money just allows me to live life on my terms.
Beckett: You grew up.
Castle: Well, I wouldn’t go that far. That property on the moon? I just bought that last month.
For no other reason, freedom. Remember that!
