Eastman Fortune Couldn't Bring Peace

?George Eastman was a young inventor who became interested in photography. He devised a means of simplifying the art of taking pictures and produced the Kodak camera with rolls of film that were easily portable and convenient to use. Capitalizing on the growing hobby of taking pictures, he built a flourishing business and amassed a fortune.? But later in life he became ill, and committed suicide. In the end, the money and success could no buy him happiness. (From 12 Questions Jesus Asked, by Merrill C. Tenney, Victor Books, 1980, p. 84)
