The Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing

I might be without home, without status, but in me there is still a being that exists and is free, that can simply say I am without adding a this, or a that, an explanation, or a qualifier (*).

“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

*Taken from Sharon Maas quote: “She might be without country, without nation, but inside her there was still a being that could exist and be free, that could simply say I am without adding a this, or a that, without saying I am Indian, Guyanese, English, or anything else in the world.”
