QotD: Wretchedness of Affluence

There is no poverty so great
as that of the prosperous,
no wrechedness so dismal
as affluence.
Wealth is poison.
There is no misery to compare
with that which exists
where technology has been
a total success.

--Thomas Merton, Catholic monk

It seems self evident to me. My life was so much simpler when I had no computer, no cell phone, just a stove and a telephone for high technology. And I do enjoy the simpler things, the wind in my hair, sun on my skin, food in my belly, warm place to sleep... we do not really need any more than this and someone to love.
