Paul Newman reprise

I can't believe I forgot my favorite Paul Newman quote in this morning's post, so here it is:

"We are such spendthrifts with our lives. The trick of living is to slip on and off the planet with the least fuss you can muster. I'm not running for sainthood. I just happen to think that in life we need to be a little like the farmer, who puts back into the soil what he takes out."

Beautifully said.

I love this quote- thanks! Just stumbled across your fascinating blog via my friend Seraphim at The green rainbow.

Isn't it absolutely great?

I love Seraphim's blog. I can't wait until she sends me a photo from her wedding for my "Thrifty Threads" series. She wore a beautiful veil and hair ornaments that were secondhand.

Welcome, and thanks for commmenting!
