It's quite a letter. Read the whole thing here.
“The moral flabbiness born of the exclusive worship of the bitch-goddess SUCCESS. That -with the squalid cash interpretation put on the word 'success' - is our national disease."

Our national disease
I really enjoyed today's This I Believe reports (and was enjoying the Pop Culture reports too, to be continued next Wednesday). With all the talk of money, goals, happiness, and "success," I thought it might be relevant to mention William James's famous statement on the subject. He was writing to H.G. Wells in 1906. Still rings true, no?
