Harvey Firestone quote

From Men and Rubber: The Story of Business:
Sometimes it seems that it might be better to go back to those simpler days, that one might get more out of a less complex life. But it cannot be done. One changes with prosperity. We all think we should like to lead a simple life, and then we find that we have picked up a thousand little habits which we are quite unconscious of because they are a part of our very being--and these habits are not in the simple life. There is no going back--except as a broken man.
