... Then I'm nothing. ...This quotation is from the Fromm's book To have or to be. If you base your existence on possessions rather than on being, living, learning etc., or if your perception of yourself is based on possessions, transitory things by nature, you'll most likely end up dissatisfied, empty and lonely.
