Thought for the Day on prosperity

This came in yesterday on Dan Galvin's Thought For The Day:

Prosperity depends more on wanting what you have than having what you want.
-Geoffrey F. Abert

This is a great line. One of the goals we have for our daughters is to teach them to be content with what they have. I want them to work hard and save for a rainy day. I hope they won't have greedy hearts, every grasping for more.

I couldn't find out much about Geoffrey Albert. says he was a French Philosopher Priest who lived from 1079 to 1142. They have two additional quotes:

The most important thing about goals is having one.

When you take charge of your life, there is no longer need to ask permission of other people or society at large. When you ask permission, you give someone veto power over your life.

I found another good quote attributed to Geoffrey Albert:

It often takes more courage to change one’s opinion than to stick to it. (from here)
