I don't know about a classroom lecture...

...but Jesus (or whoever wrote the Bible) said basically the same thing thousands of years ago.  In the Bible, in the Book of Matthew, Chapter 16, verse 26, Jesus asks, "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

I suspect this is the answer you're looking for?
