Yuppie Quotes

The media have just buried the last yuppie, a pathetic creature who had not heard the news that the great pendulum of public consciousness has just swung from Greed to Compassion and from Tex-Mex to meatballs. Barbara Ehrenreich

The Yuppies are not defectors from revolt, they are a new race, assured, amnestied, exculpated, moving with ease in the world of performance, mentally indifferent to any objective other than that of change and advertising. Jean Baudrillard

Yuppies don’t have loyalty. They have useful relationships and meaningful encounters. William Kristol

The yuppie idea of the future ain’t my idea of a future. Your safe car, and home, and job, and all the time rushing between the three – let’s make people feel they can grow up and have some education, some interest in life! That’s what counts! Joe Strummer
