"Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted."

Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly.

Those things you earn are the ones you don't take for granted.

We probably like to think that our values are inherent in the core of who we are as human beings but I believe that they are largely learned responses.

So, if our kids take things for granted we have to, at some point, recognize that we have taught them to do that. If we don't like it then we need to invest the time and energy into teaching them something different.

I resemble this remark. *sigh*

I should have done a better job at teaching my sons the fine art of "appreciation."
