we wouldn’t amount to shit?? All he said was, “Eat. You need it,” like he knew everything. Really he was right. We were all growing. No matter what their age, everybody. The entire world. We were spinning our way into growth. Our heads spinning…That was why we ate and should eat. Each other and everything. We needed it. So we could grow as quickly as possible. Grow as quickly as possible and croak and leave space for others. So a new epoch could begin. One that was preferably not like this one…because we could tell we wouldn’t amount to shit. We weren’t that dumb…not all that dumb… I would like to know what does " we wouldn’t amount to shit" here mean. Thanks.

we wouldn't amount to anything- be of any worth- be important- do anything significant etc we'd never matter or do anything worthwhile.
