Many wealthy people are little more than janitors of their possessions. Frank Lloyd Wright, architect (1867-1959)

Commentary: I believe he is saying wealthy people have a lot of stuff they forget they have until the maid complains about having to dust it. This is probably true, but it is true for many people, even those who are middle-income or poor. We all see stuff we like, buy it, then forget about it. We are all guilty of being wasteful. Some waste is normal, but waste can be minimized simply by sharing. Thank goodness for the lawn sale.

There is a deeper meaning to this saying, which might be closer to what he meant. Sometimes we buy things or want things because of the satisfaction of just having stuff. We might forget that we have it, but there is no way we would ever give it away. The having is what is most important. Somehow, having things, even stuff we do not need, makes us feel more special.
