„A society becomes stagnant when its people are too rational or too serious to be tempted by baubles.“

—  Eric Hoffer American philosopher 1902 - 1983
Context: Man is a luxury-loving animal. Take away play, fancies, and luxuries, and you will turn man into a dull, sluggish creature, barely energetic enough to obtain a bare subsistence. A society becomes stagnant when its people are too rational or too serious to be tempted by baubles. Section 28
