Materialism quotes

Chuck Palahniuk
You buy furniture. You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. Buy the sofa, then for a couple years you're satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you've got your sofa issue handled. Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug. Then you're trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.

Henri Frederic Amiel
Materialism coarsens and petrifies everything, making everything vulgar, and every truth false.

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

Anthony J. D'Angelo
Treasure your relationships, not your possessions.

Joan Rivers
People say that money is not the key to happiness, but I always figured if you have enough money, you can have a key made.

Anatole France
The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.

Louis D. Brandeis
We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both.

Studs Terkel
Perhaps it is this specter that most haunts working men and women: the planned obsolescence of people that is of a piece with the planned obsolescence of the things they make. Or sell.
