To Live Content

"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony."

--William Henry Channing

This is such a beautiful reminder; thank you for posting it! What's the source, is there a full book?

I absolutely love that quote!

It is a keeper!

I may have to put it somewhere on my blog for good.

CD--thanks! Fixed it.

I have this quote in my daytimer, next to the extras from when we had passport photos taken of the family. They are my smile and be happy reminders.
