When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.

Focus on quality

There is only so much quantity you can add to any aspect of your life. Yet there is no limit to the level of quality you can attain.

Instead of doing something more and more, consider doing it better and better. Instead of increasing the quantity of what you consume or experience, consider raising the level of quality.

Live richly rather than ravenously. Focus not on how much you have but rather on how well you make meaningful use of it.

Let go of the wearisome need to have more and more. Embrace, enjoy and nurture your ability to give deeper meaning to what you already have.

Even the little things can bring great joy. Even the small moments can make a big difference.

Each moment is an opportunity to raise the level of quality in your life. Focus on quality, today and every day, and there is no limit to the richness you can experience.

— Ralph Marston
