When you come to terms with the fact that you’re going to die, the fact that you never really own anything permanently, that your phone, your kitchen table, even your house one day won’t be there, you realize that you’re actually renting the things you own.

You’re far from home and you forgot your umbrella, so you buy a new one to use just for today. Everything we buy follows this model, where you pay money, and get to use it for awhile.

The value of an object is the use you get out of it, divided by its cost.
