In this quote, Robert Orben is drawing a comparison between traditional family values and the modern emphasis on credit/debt. Specifically:

  • He notes that in the past, what people honored and respected most was their father and mother as parental figures.
  • Orben then contrasts this by saying nowadays what many honor most are “all major credit cards” implying a shift toward the importance of credit companies and debt obligations.

The overall message seems to be that Orben views family and intergenerational relationships as once providing more financial and social stability than our complex modern credit system dependent on plastic. Through humor and nostalgia, he suggests life was simpler when respecting elders, not lenders, guided people’s priorities and responsibilities.

The above quote is by American comedian Milton Berle. In the quote, he is jokingly referring to the challenge of his own son buying a Christmas gift. Since Berle already owns and uses everything, there is nothing new his son could buy for him as a gift.

Berle is using humor to comment on how children may struggle to find a suitable gift for parents who are financially well-off and already possess most material goods. The quote suggests that finding a gift in that situation can indeed be a “big Christmas problem.”
