“As a man grows older, his ability to sit still and follow indoor occupations increases. He grows vespertinal in his habits as the evening of life approaches, till at last he comes forth only just before sundown, and gets all the walk that he requires in half an hour.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Americans want action for their money. They are fascinated by its self-reproducing qualities if its put to work.... Gold-hoarding goes against the American grain; it fits in better with European pessimism than with Americas traditional optimism.”
—Paula Nelson (b. 1945)
