Random Quote of the Moment

Came across this one in my copy of The Tao of the Dude:

“We should have been called Homo dissatisfactens. From Homo habilis (Tool-making man) to the Sharper Image, we have been trying–unsuccessfully, it appears–to make ourselves comfortable of the last 350,000 years or so. Only a tribe of aborigines in Australia was hip enough to notice that the more one has, the shorter it feels. So they got off the treadmill when their tool count had risen to a total of five (counting the digeridoo).”
