A little piece of advice from a Mr. Benjamin Franklin…

An old, dear yogi friend of mine crashed on our couch last week and when I awoke there was a quote sitting on the table. It was coined by Benjamin Franklin (1766-1790), an American Statesman. It’s amazing how the more you read, the more you realize that we’re all yogis looking for eternal peace…

“There are two ways to be happy: We may either diminish our wants or augment our means.
Either will do – the result is the same; and it is for each man to decide for himself.
Do that which happens to be easiest…but if you are wise, you will do both at the same time.”

Food for thought, for sure.

  1. I like this one a lot. Funny how sometimes we start to learn these on our own, then a quote will come along to re-assure us that we’re not crazy. 🙂
