Barbara Ehrenreich is my new culture hero, I think.

In addition to the quote enshrined in this post's title, I offer up...

"One of the things in American culture is a big compassion deficit, a big empathy deficit: 'just smile, tell me the good stuff and shut up'."

"If I was worth $500 million, perhaps things would come true for me by visualising them too."

"Next time the company brings in the motivational speaker, everybody [should walk] out."
