"A young child dressed in rags may dream of one day being clothed in silk shirts and fine garments worn by a gentleman of fashion and style. Until that day comes however, he will simply look at a kind of world in which he holds no place of recognition and little regard.
Were you born into such a life in one of the poorer countries of the world, wouldn't you one day dream of travelling to a new and promised land, or would you simply content yourself to hang around the rag pile of hand-me-downs while you rot within the compost heap of conspicuous consumption, hoping for something better to turn up? Surely it is an indelible part of the human characteristic to strive to survive and to want better for oneself and loved ones?" William Forde: September 5th, 2013.
