Of Great Men In Antiquity

In general, the great men of antiquity have been poor. Today, everyone fails on that point: one cannot live on little.
As for myself, a great heart in a small house is always what has touched me the most here on earth.

~Lacordaire (1802-1861)

Does that mean it's hard to come by great men in our current society anymore?
