Do money and social position really satisfy? Just read the tragic account of Christina Onassis who died at the age of 37. Commenting on her life, her stepsister Henrietta Gelber said, “She was one of those people who would never be happy.” “She would become impatient. It had all come too easily – all the money, houses all over the world, few real responsibilities.” “She lacked a sense of achievement,” says Gelber. “What she was striving for was just to be a normal human being with normal family relationships, which was virtually impossible in her situation. She has houses all over the world, but she never really had a home.”

-People Magazine, December 5, 1988
