"I know you've heard about the Depression we had back then. Well, I don't think times were nearly so bad as some people put on. For one thing, in those days, folks in small places were accustomed to being poor and didn't expect to get rich, like they do now. For another, when people are working hard for the grit essentials - like enough to eat, and clothes for their kids, and a roof that's tolerably sound - they're apt to be good-hearted and understanding of one another. It's only when they start flogging themselves to get things they don't really need - like big cars, and fancy clothes, and a house bigger than the one next door - that they get aggravated and mean. At least, that's the way it appears to me." - Joe David Brown, "Paper Moon"
