Mildred Lisette Norman wrote, 'Anything you cannot relinquish when it has outlived its usefulness possesses you. And in this materialistic age, a great many of us are possessed by our possessions'.
I first heard this quote last night while watching "Criminal Minds" on CBS. For those who don't watch, every episode begins and ends with a quote. This one really caught my attention. I did some research and Mildred Lisette Norman is a real person (I'm not always sure the quotes are "real", but this one is).
