We used to love people and use things

"...A number of years ago, an aged former home builder told me that in the 1920′s when he started building homes, the houses had lots of bedrooms and no closets because everyone had lots of kids but owned very little.  But by the late 1950′s the trend had switched to homes with fewer bedrooms and lots of closets, he told me, as we came to love things rather than people.  He sighed, and said, “We used to love people and use things, and now it is the reverse.”

Great post by Father Ted. Read the whole thing here.
