Quote :: Materialism

"Advertising has altered humankind. We've gone from caveman and cavewoman to craveman and cravewoman. - Frank Tyger

"Imagine the globe's population reduced to a single village of 1,000. If that village was to accurately reflect the world's nationalities, then only 60 villagers would be American. The Americans would own 15 times more material possessions than any of their neighbors, and would enjoy an average life expectancy of 70 years as opposed to less than 40 years for the other villagers. And those same Americans would have 28 of the village's 53 telephones. "- Zondervan Press Syndicate, July 1995

"Prosperity has not been kind to the American family. It breeds short, shallow roots. Fragile anchors. It's not that prosperity and wealth are inherently evil. They aren't. But their presence constantly tempts us to believe we are secure without God and that money can be an adequate substitute for real family values. Dad's money can make up for Dad's absence. Things can replace time spent together. Cash can replace conviction. Wealth can pay for irresponsibility and buy mistakes. A big house can substitute for a sense of home." - Robert Lewis, Pastor, Fellowship Bible Church, Little Rock, AR

"Any problem that can be solved with money isn't a problem. It's an expense." - Anonymous

"The essence of life today is not having - it is having to have." - David Hansen

"Most of us would be willing to pay as we go if we could just finish paying for where we've been." - Ann Landers

"The main emotion of the adult American who has had all the advantages of wealth, education, and culture is disappointment." - John Cheever

"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." - Matthew 6:21
