Epicurus

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for.”
--Epicurus

* I'm a longtime fan of Ben Casnocha's blog, but I just discovered his Business Rules of Thumb Wiki. This is a wonderful compilation of rules -- what I call, in my own terminology "true rules" and "Secrets of Adulthood." It's a fantastic, thoughtful list.
