Million dollar idea, live like a peasant professor

Ryuta Kawashima Ryuta Kawashima was offered million bucks from the royalties Nintendo DS made out of his popular video game. The man refuses to take it. He live exactly like a proverb I always like to use, especially when I am broke – “腰缠万贯,日进不过三餐,华屋千尺,夜眠亦只数丈。

He says,

"Everyone in my family is mad at me but I tell them that if they want money, go out and earn it."

"To hear this may put you off -- but my hobby is work,"

"Having fun is not studying. Making them study is not to entertain children but to pressure them to make efforts. People fall to lower and lower places unless they are driven to go higher,"

"I'm confident I'll go senile."
