To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.
William Ellery Channing
Love this quote - thanks Ali for putting on your blog. Here's wishing you a wonderful weekend. I plan to clean, declutter, find some snow, and get over my cold. I think a nice stew would be great too.
