Pearls before time

Two paraphrased gems from friends that I’ve been regurgitating for a number of years now:

  • We only have a certain number of years to live, which means a fixed number of meals in our lives. So, we should make each meal as good as it can be.

    This one is good for getting out of meals you don’t fancy.

  • When in doubt, do without. We should only buy indulgences (i.e. clothes, etc.) that strike us like a thunderbolt.

    This one is good for tipping the scale when someone’s trying to decide on the worthiness of a purchase. Or deeper things. Once, “when in doubt, do without” somehow motivated a friend into breaking off a rusty relationship and embarking on one that has lasted for a good decade. I’m still not sure how that happened.
