Quote of the week

July 12, 2009

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.
