…Set Aside

Today is National Savings Day, which, as you might have guessed, is all about reminding you to rethink your finances. I know, most of us would rather do pretty much anything else. Whether you like it or not they’re important, and if you don’t believe me, try ignoring them for a while and see what happens.

While money can’t buy happiness, you may find you’re grateful you set some aside on a rainy day. In honor of the holiday, I thought I’d share a few pearls of wisdom (from those wiser than myself) about wealth  in all its different forms.

“A penny saved is a penny got.”

~Benjamin Franklin

“Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.”

~Henry David Thoreau

“It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

~J. K Rowling

“It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.”

~Eleanor Roosevelt
