Man does not live by radio alone

Man simply does not live by radio, automobiles, and refrigerators alone, but by the whole unpurchasable world beyond the market, the world of dignity, beauty, poetry, grace, chivalry, love, and friendship, the world of community, variety of life, freedom, and fullness of personality. Circumstances which debar man from such a life or make it difficult for him stand irrevocably convicted, for they destroy the essence of his nature.

Wilhelm Röpke, A Humane Economy: The Social Framework of the Free Market, p. 89
