“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 of 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.”
“You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all
part of the same compost pile. Our culture has made us all the same. No one is truly white or black or rich, anymore.
We all want the same. Individually, we are nothing.”
