>’More!’ is as effective a revolutionary slogan as was ever invented by doctrinaires of discontent.  The American, who cannot learn to want what he has, is a permanent revolutionary.  He glories in change, has faith in that which he has not yet, and is ready to give his life for it.

– Eric Hoffer

We must learn to want what we already have.  Wanting and needing aren’t simply disposable desires, dependent on some future hypothetical conditions, which come and pass without ever truly reaching us.

– K. Michael Prewitt
