Money, money everywhere and still not enough! Quote

Short Link to this Quote:



In this quote, Henry Miller appears to be describing a feeling of being overwhelmed and desensitized by the pervasive presence and influence of money in modern society.

He portrays a nighttime crowd where every person and every small thing is somehow tied to the concept of money – people are “protected”, “lulled” and “dulled” by it, the crowd itself represents money, and even the air seems saturated with thoughts of wealth. Yet for all this money everywhere, Miller suggests it still somehow never seems quite sufficient.

The best interpretation is that he was commenting on how money had become all-consuming in both literal and figurative senses, but could never fully satisfy deeper human needs and desires.
