Consumerism quotes

Frank A. Clark
There is one advantage to having nothing, it never needs repair.

John Maynard Keynes
Most men love money and security more, and creation and construction less, as they get older.

John Berger
The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied... but written off as trash. The twentiethcentury consumer economy has produced the first culture for which a beggar is a reminder of nothing.

Paul McCartney
Somebody said to me, But the Beatles were antimaterialistic. That's a huge myth. John and I literally used to sit down and say, Now, let's write a swimming pool.

Eric Hoffer
You can never get enough of what you don't need to make you happy.

Henry David Thoreau
Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends.. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.

Edward Abbey
Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.

Raoul Vaneigem
Production and consumption are the nipples of modern society. Thus suckled, humanity grows in strength and beauty rising standard of living, all modern conveniences, distractions of all kinds, culture for all, the comfort of your dreams.
