"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for."

Epicurus (341 BC - 270 BC)

Appreciation for the here and now can be a gift that we give to ourselves each moment.

How appropriate is THIS for the "too much stuff" generation? Interesting that the more things change, the more they stay the same...

It's wanting what you've got."

The cynic in me sees this as yet another endorsement of complacency - "don't worry - be happy" with what you have.

Shouldn't we all strive for more in our live? I don't necessarily mean things either. If, as a whole, mankind were satisified with what we had, we would still be huddled in caves, happy in the darkness.
