Quote of the week

The greatest comfort of my old age, and that which gives me the highest satisfaction, is the pleasing remembrance of the many benefits and friendly offices I have done to others.

Marcus Cato (95-46BC)
Roman statesman and philosopher

For “benefits and friendly offices”, you could also read “gifts” – especially as gifts sometimes take the form of kindly services rather than objects.  This quote really resonates with me – I have to agree that good giving makes for good memories.
