No really worthwhile human achievement has ever been instigated on the
basis of demonstrable cost-effectiveness. I wouldn't go so far as to
say also that nothing worthwhile has ever been done in the pursuit of
money - Rembrandt and Beethoven accepted commissions, after all - but
most things that are really worth doing involve little or no financial

And, of course, with no commissions Rembrandt and Beethoven would still
have painted and composed, because their primary motivation was a desire
to create something worthwhile regardless of the reward...
