Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like.
— Will Rogers

Posses quotes
Picture quote about Posses

Whatever you cannot understand, you cannot possess.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Those who are possessed by nothing possess everything.
— Morihei Ueshiba

The mass of men serve the state thus, not as men mainly, but as machines, with their bodies. They are the standing army, and the militia, jailers, constables, posse comitatus, etc. In most cases there is no free exercise whatever of the judgment or of the moral sense; but they put themselves on a level with wood and earth and stones; and wooden men can perhaps be manufactured that will serve the purpose as well. Such command no more respect than men of straw or a lump of dirt. They have the same sort of worth only as horses and dogs. Yet such as these even are commonly esteemed good citizens. Others
— posses quotation by Henry David Thoreau
