“The Amount We Owe Is All That We Have”

Woody Guthrie said that. Here’s the longer quotation:

I think back through my life to everybody that I owe, I mean the ones that I can remember in person. Of course I know that I owe these folks and they owe some other people and these are in debt to others and all of us owe everybody, but the amount that we owe is all that we have.

I structured the acknowledgments to my dissertation around this idea and thought it would be a good piece to put in the writing page I just added to the site.
