Opened my pc this morning and msn comes up, I always look to see if there's anything of value, before getting my email n' stuff.
Anyway there was this :

about people doing with less. Can you imagine? People suggesting that they would be happier with less? not having every shmuntzka out there?
Yes! They have come to the conclusion that life needs guidelines. WOW what a concept. they think life can be had, no, life is better with a bit of self control.
Hummmm a novel concept, must have taken years to figure this out.
And to top it off they, having voluntarily tasted this lifestyle say its fulfilling.
So, you think that maybe G-d had it right all these years?
Nah.

I think doing with less is more palatable when the choice is ours to make. We want to be able to choose to make do with less.

It's like when a parent tells a child something and the child disregards it because they want to see for themself if it's like how they say.

I could do with more.

Well, in some ways, it is all a matter of perspective.

Sometimes, too, when you have more, you learn to give more.

The more you get, the more you need. Remember those good old days when you never even heard of a cell phone? ahhhhhh, life!

Every kid wants to know that their parent is a strong barrier. For good and bad & and for life's ins and outs

You just think so, but if you thought about it you'd think differently, I think.
