The things you own end up owning you.

“Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.”

“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.”

“The things you own end up owning you. It’s only after you lose everything that you’re free to do anything.”

― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
