Actions are more important than stuff

A Walk in the Woods by  Bill Bryson. Bill  is a travel writer and is one of my favorite. He is from Iowa and lived in England for 25 years and worked for the London Times, or some other such newspaper - it was written in English, I know that. He wrote this book and mentioned how he didn't like people who talked ad nauseum about their "stuff." He met a guy who droned on about how he selected his backpack and the fact it had a see-thru pouch so he could see stuff inside said pouch. I feel that same sentiment. Rather than talking about stuff, how about doing stuff?
