The rich adopt novelties and become accustomed to their use. This sets a fashion which others imitate. Once the richer classes have adopted a certain way of living, producers have an incentive to improve the methods of manufacture so that soon it is possible for the poorer classes to follow suit.

Luxury is the roadmaker of progress: it develops latent needs and makes people discontented.

Why not just appear to the one who seeks Him and speak face to face. No! Why? It would kill us.

The Bible prepares us for Him, does it not? Using types, shadows, stories, just to whet your appetite and get you accustomed to Him and His dealings so you are not totally shocked when you do meet Him. (Quote by - Chip Brogden)
