“The most remarkable aspect of the transition we are living through is not so much the passage from want to affluence as the passage from labor to leisure.... Leisure contains the future, it is the new horizon....

—Henri Lefebvre (b. 1901)
“It is better to have a prosaic husband and to take a romantic lover.”
