An Apropos Quote

I was reading an article last night about a man who is living in the Moab Desert in Utah with an income of zero, nil, nada, zip (i.e., 0) dollars per year. It was an interesting article about how money causes us to want more, when in reality, we don't need much to survive. Now, having two small children, money is definitely a necessity, but this article included a quote that is even appropriate for the baseball card collecting world...

Gold is pretty but virtually useless. Somebody decided it has worth, and everybody accepted this decision. The natives in the Americas thought Europeans were insane because of their lust for such a useless yellow substance."

I'm sure one could exchange baseball cards for gold into that quote quite easily.
