Quotables: Your Money or Your Life -- Chapter 1, Part 2

Here are some final quotes from the first chapter:
  • We haven't just borrowed from "the bank." We've borrowed from future generations... (p11)
  • And many of us are out there "making a dying" because we've bought the pervasive American myth that more is better. (p 12)
  • Americans used to be "citizens." Now we are "consumers"--which means people who "use up, waste, destroy and squander." (p 15)
  • Whoever dies with the most toys wins. Life, liberty and the pursuit of material possessions. (p 17)
