I wasn't exactly sure of where it started but I thought it had a Biblical allusion. Here is an explination I found. I'll place the source-link after.

You have worked hard to get something that has no value.

The KJV of the Bible, Proverbs 11:29 gives us, "He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart." In the play (or the movie, if that is your reference) we see that lesson fulfilled.
