Not that there is one everyday….
“Four be the things I am wiser to know: Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe. Four be the things I’d been better without: Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.” -Dorothy Parker, “inventory”
I just got my January Real Simple Magazine and this was on the “thoughts” page. I certainly understand the first portion of this quote. I have recently learned who are friends and who are not…. and I’ve seen sorrow which led to much idleness. The second portion of the quote however, I’m not sure I agree with. What good is life without love, curiosity, just enough doubt… and especially freckles.
