Specialists in Living. . .

I found a good book (several actually) at the used bookstore yesterday.

In Simple Abundance By Sarah Ban Breathnach she quotes an October 1932 quotes in Ladies Home Journal.  So timely for Janurary 2009. . . 

“The return of good times is not wholly a matter of money. There is a prosperity of living which is quite as important as prosperity of the pocketbook.  It is not enough to be willing to make the best of things as they are.  Resignation will get us nowhere.  We must build what amounts to a new country.  We must revive the ideals of the founders.  We must learn the new values of money.  It is a time for pioneering-to create a new security for the home and the family. . . Where we were specialists in spending, we are becoming specialists in living.

 

 

If not a specialist in living, a specialist in playing for sure!
