R. Buckminster Fuller

Humanity is acquiring all the right technology for all the wrong reasons.

Richard Buckminster Fuller

Some debts are fun when you are acquiring them, but none are fun when you set about retiring them.

Ogden Nash

A true friend is the most precious of all possessions and the one we take the least thought about acquiring

La Rochefoucauld

Of all the ways of acquiring books, writing them oneself is regarded as the most praiseworthy method. [...] Writers are really people who write books not because they are poor, but because they are dissatisfied with the books which they could buy but do not like.

Walter Bendix Schnflies Benjamin

Material possessions in themselves are good. We would not survive for long without money, clothing, shelter and food. Yet if we refuse to share what we have with the hungry and the poor, we make of our possessions a false god. How many voices in our materialist society tell us that happiness is to be found by acquiring as many possessions and luxuries as we can! But this is to make possessions into a false god. Instead of bringing life, they bring death.

Pope Benedict XVI
