but the poverty of the soul is irreparable.”

    I never tire of a good quote. It’s like textual dessert.

    I love Montaigne. I’ve thumbed several editions to shreds. I always have that book by my bedside.

    Speaking of poverty, another wise man, whose name I’ve forgotten, had this to say:

    “Money does not buy happiness. A man with ten million dollars is no happier than one with nine million.”

    Hi Nicola. It is, isn’t it?

    “Textual dessert” – oh, that’s excellent, Bice.

    LOL, Penseroso. That’s a good one.

    Hello Iced Mocha….This quote is an excellent one….it reminds me of a little mantra I have to help me get through times when I feel I’m lacking (i.e. feeling sorry for myself): All I have is all I need, all I need is all I have. Whether it’s something material or spiritual or emotional that I feel I SHOULD have, reflecting on the moment right now helps to put things in perspective & generally I can do without whatever it was that I thought I couldn’t.
    de Montaigne is right…we need to feed our souls first.
    Thanks for helping to nourish ours through your insights! 🙂

    Chantal – thank you for your visit and your comment.

    “All I have is all I need, all I need is all I have.” I like that very much.
