Modesty adorns the man
Most millionaires want to show off how wealthy they are, but there are exceptions. Some are, in fact, quite modest. They’ve changed enough about themselves to make it seem as if they’re not rich at all. They want to show that you don’t need much to be happy. It’s hard to believe, but sometimes they want to pass off their fortune to others. Marcel was one of those people.
Marcel lived most of his life in the French Alps in a modest log cabin. All he had was tap water and electricity, can you imagine? Nowadays nobody would want to live this way. But it allowed him to save lots of money and become very wealthy. It was hard to believe that he had lots of money: he wore tattered clothing, had gross hair, and almost all his teeth were missing.
