Quote for 3/16/09

"May we never let the things we can't have, or don't have, or shouldn't have, spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have."
Richard L. Evans

The older I get, the more I realize how meaningless possessions can be. I'm looking forward to the day that they mean El Zippo.

Wink,
It isn't that I find possesions to be meaningless, so much as the wanton desire to have and acquire more and more and more to be an empty, soulless pursuit. And I think that's why our nation and our economy is in the condition that it currently is. We've sold our souls to the lowest bidder with the fanciest trinkets and the sharpest advertising campaign.
We've lost sight of the most important things in life - the love of our friends and family, strong convictions, integrity, faith, determination, being content with what we have - and substituted in their place a lust for material goods, keeping-up-with-the-joneses, and a government program to get us out of the holes we've dug for ourselves.

God have mercy on us all for our pathetic selfishness and materialism !!!
