Quote by Richard Pryor
There was a time in my life when I thought I had everything - millions of dollars, mansions, cars, nice clothes, beautiful women, and every other materialistic thing you can imagine. Now I struggle for peace.
This quote reflects a profound realization by the speaker that material possessions and external achievements do not necessarily bring true happiness or contentment. They recount a personal journey from a period of abundant material wealth, where they seemingly "had everything," to a current state of struggling to find inner peace. This suggests a shift in priorities, emphasizing the value of inner fulfillment and emotional well-being over materialistic pursuits. It highlights the recognition that genuine satisfaction is not found in external possessions alone, but in the pursuit of inner tranquility and balance.

He wasn't sure what this might mean--except perhaps that he had got life and art mixed up, back to front, upside down.
