On excess baggage.............

"It is much easier in America to earn a lot of money than
it is to accumulate wealth.  Why is this the case?  Because
we are a consumption-oriented society."

".......many status oriented artifacts can be a burden, if not
an impediment, to becoming financially independent.  Life
has its own burdens.  Why add excess baggage?"

-Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko,
The Millionaire Next Door
