I know, John Steinbeck's been gone from us for awhile. However, his words live on – once again current as when his ink was still wet on the page. I can't resist linking to my friend Terri's blog here, because she puts it right on the money.
I, too, pity the rich. Sure they live in luxury, but it is a luxury that is a poverty of the heart, and slavery to 'stuff' at the same time. Wealth is a golden cage, and I'd rather be free.
