Money Quote Friday – Satisfaction Of The Individual Edition.

“I love the United States, but I see here everything is measured by success, by how much money it makes, not the satisfaction to the individual.”

– John Fellows Akers

And I truly believe this is something that we have to watch out for, because if all we do is try to make more and more money, we are missing out on the “living” part of being alive. Have a great weekend.

  1. Sounds like Akers would agree then with King Wangchuk of Bhutan, who said, “Gross national happiness (GNH) is more important than gross national product,” because “happiness takes precedence over economic prosperity in our national development process”.

    Novel idea, isn’t it?

    In this country, yes, it sure is Kate.

  3. You know what – I am a capitalist through and through – but I have to agree with the Akers quote. Thanks for sharing it.

    It’s really ironic how the constant pursuit of more and more money and things and a far-off happiness is actually why so many can’t live a satisfied life today. That’s an excellent quote. 😉
