Utility is our national shibboleth: the savior of the American businessman is fact and his uterine half-brother, statistics. (Quote by - Edward Dahlberg)

The rich adopt novelties and become accustomed to their use. This sets a fashion which others imitate. Once the richer classes have adopted a certain way of living, producers have an incentive to improve the methods of manufacture so that soon it is possible for the poorer classes to follow suit.

Luxury is the roadmaker of progress: it develops latent needs and makes people discontented. In so far as they think consistently, moralists who condemn luxury must recommend the comparatively desireless existence of the wild life roaming in the woods as the ultimate ideal of civilized life. (Quote by - Ludwig Von Mises)

Don't buy the house, buy the neighborhood. (Quote by - Russian Proverb)

He who lives by the crystal ball soon learns to eat ground glass. (Quote by - Edgar R. Fiedler)

As the science of economics...exploded the fallacies of every brand of utopianism, it was outlawed and stigmatized as unscientific. (Quote by - Ludwig Von Mises)

Only positive consequences encourage good future performances. (Quote by - George Crane)

The saddest thing I can imagine is to get used to luxury. (Quote by - Charlie Chaplin)

Capitalists are motivated not chiefly by the desire to consume wealth or indulge their appetites, but by the freedom and power to consummate their entrepreneurial ideas. (Quote by - George Gilder)
