“I meant no harm. I most truly did not.
But I had to grow bigger. So bigger I got.
I biggered my factory. I biggered my roads.
I biggered my wagons. I biggered the loads
of the Thneeds I shipped out. I was shipping them forth
to the South! To the East! To the West! To the North!
I went right on biggering ... selling more Thneeds.
And I biggered my money, which everyone needs.”

The Once-ler, from The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss
