Rat Race

Rat race is the perfect name for it… We’re always going and going and going and never asking where. Did you ever hear of having more than you wanted? So that you couldn’t want anything else and started looking for something else to want? It seems like were always searching for something to satisfy us, and never finding it. Maybe if we could lose our cool, we could.
-The Outsiders, by S. E. Hinton

Searching for something more to want. Sound familiar?

I think S. E. Hinton’s words about the higher social class in The Outsiders is also descriptive of our western society as a whole today.
