Speaker 1 (00:00):
I See's Daily Game. It's a production of iHeartRadio. What's Up,
Size Tea? You're listening to The Daily Game, the compilation
of motivational quotes I've collected over the years that I
found inspiring and helped me through the game of life.
Today's quote is from Will Rogers, a performer and writer

known for his political wit. When he died, he was
one of the highest paid stars in Hollywood. This sounds
like something I said Will Rogers from back in the day.
Will said, too many people spend money they earn to
buy things they don't want to impress people they don't like.

I one time was working at an art gallery. Well
actually my girlfriend was working at an art gallery and
I was doing shows for them, and the guy said,
art is something that rich people buy to prove to
other people that they know something that they don't know.
So you know, you got this Rembrandt on the wall,

and somebody walks in and you explain it to them
and they go, Wow, you knew something I didn't know,
and it's so valuable. He said. It's also some way
of hanging your money on the wall to prove you
don't need it. So you know, if I walk into
your house and you have a million dollar painting hanging

on the wall. What you're saying is, that's a million
dollars I don't need. It's a flex Okay. Now, people
take the money they earn and buy things they don't want.
I don't know about that. Well, they maybe they think
they want it, but they're buying it to impress people
that they don't know. That's deep. I think the reason

they want it is to impress people they don't know.
So it's things they're buying, things they don't really want,
and the reason they're buying buying it is to impress
people that they don't know or even like deep shit
Will Rogers, deep deep deep stuff. But I guess that
goes for designer clothes and things like that. You know,

people that are buying name brand bags and stuff, they're
buying it because they are using it to impress other people,
but it may not actually be something they really desire
or they like. Yeah, that's a fucked up life. I know,
the money I earn, I buy things I want. Now

I'm trying to ask myself why do I want them? Yeah,
he got me in my own head with that one.
That was a good one. But I think the key
is money you earn should be spent on things that
you truly want and desire. And hey, maybe you do
like Gucci bags, maybe you like that kind of stuff.
I know I like fly shit, But why am I

doing it? Who am I trying to impress? Or am
I trying to impress anybody? I think I'm past that stage.
I think right now everything I buy is shit. I
like Bill got me and my own motherfucking head on
that one. But listen, whatever lifestyle you can afford, make
sure you're doing it for you and not just to

impress other people. I think that's the key. I think
that's what he's really saying, and that's the way I'm
a rock out with. This makes you. You're taking your
hard earned money and doing it for you, not for
anybody else's, you know, not trying to make anybody else
feel any kind of way. Do it because you want
to do it. This has been another ice cold fact

from me iced tea. Listening again tomorrow when I drop
some wisdom on your ass till then, stay safe, stay smart,
and stay knowing that spending money on things that don't
make you happy is a waste Icey's Daily Gaming. It's
