I'm subscribed to a blog belonging to another Ben, Ben Casnocha.
Today, Ben had a great quote of the day as his post:
“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.” – E.B. White
I agree, although the quote captures the sentiment in black and white terms.
I prefer to live my life by the 'everything in moderation' rule. Applying that concept to the quote above means trying to both save the world and savor it, every single day.
If nothing else, what a great goal to have.
