The Significance Of Our Belongings

"People do not necessarily understand the importance and significance of the things they own."

"It is often the case that observers from other countries or cultures notice things about our behaviour that we do not see because we are so accustomed to the behaviour that we cannot recognise its significance."

 - Arthur Asa Berger, (2009), What Objects Mean: An Introduction to Material Culture, Walnut Creek, Left Coast Press.
