Advice for those trying to pare down their possessions: (Me).
"What does it take to really own and possess? It means loving a thing so much that one can't be parted from it, can't stand to see it neglected and misused, can't trust that someone else will care for it sufficiently.
"..in shopping, buying, and possessing we are never satisfied -- (which) indicates that we never fully possess or fully own. "
from Meditations, Thomas Moore, p. 22
