Goods and the good

[Plato] realized that the possession of goods was not a means of getting happiness, but an effort to make up for a spiritually depauperate life: for Plato, happiness was what one could put into life and not what one could loot out of it: it was the happiness of the dancer rather than the happiness of the glutton.

— Lewis Mumford, 1922

    If you can post to your serious blog, you can tell us about your new dwelling and your trip in your other blog. Unless you’re spiritually despauperate or something!
