Thaksin: I used to dream of becoming a rich man
This is from a typically anti-government article from The Nation, but this quote from Prime Minister Thaksin is rather memorable: "I used to dream of becoming a rich man. But once I achieved that dream, I realised that a man doesn't really need all that much. I once carried cash equivalent to Bt2 million which I planned to spend on a one-day shopping spree on New York's Fifth Avenue," Thaksin said. "Once I got there and spent some Bt300,000, it dawned on me that I really needed nothing more. All that I've ever wanted, I already have."
