A TRUE ARTIST!
Money .... "needs YOU, it needs your ideas, before it can be of any use to the world... So instead of thinking that you need money, realize that money needs YOU.... Your ideas (art, music, etc.) provide the outlet for it, the means by which money can do things. Develop your ideas, secure in the knowledge that money is always looking for such an outlet. When the ideas are perfected, money will gravitate your way without conscious effort on your part, if only you don't dam up the channels with doubts and fears."- Robert Collier No, you will never labor again because you know the law of supply. But, yes, to answer your question, there are many who disappointingly only revere money with prestige.
