** The increasing "graduate glut" means that this is increasingly applying to undergraduate courses too - university is often now prized more for the life experience that people gain than for the bit of paper at the end of it.

* The Mirror of Llunet from ''The Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'', which is a mirror. After Taran's journey, it shows him exactly as he is: his faults, his strengths, and how much he's grown. It is a revelation that makes him TakeALevelInBadass. The BigBad of the book Dorath, however, was [[OnlyInItForTheMoney expecting riches]] like the legends told, and, [[EvilCannotComprehendGood not comprehending the true meaning of the mirror]], crushes the sacred mirror with the heel of his boot in a rage.

* DiscussedTrope in ''Literature/TheGreatDivorce'': the (apostate) bishop believes this, while his more heavenly-minded friend disagrees--if the destination isn't worth traveling to, then how could anyone go anywhere in hope?

Added DiffLines:

* A very strong implication of the ending of the original ''Film/GameOfDeath''. Bruce decides to not go up to the highest floor but descend the stairs and not retrieve the treasure, as he learns that after all of the fighting, the treasure is ultimately unimportant but the quest for enlightenment and improvement is and no treasure can keep up with this.

* Christians believe that when you pray for something like courage, God gives you ''opportunities'' to be courageous, rather than having you just wake up with instant courage.

* Parodied at the end of the Captain Scarlett DLC of ''Videogame/Borderlands 2}}'', where just as you reach the treasure room the game cuts to the credits and a child acting as the narrator claims that the real treasure were the friends they made during the journey. Marcus, the real narrator points how lame of an ending that is. Thankfully, after the credits [[MontyHaul you get to loot Captain Blade's treasure room for reals]].
