Are You Spending Yourself Wisely?

'Life begets energy--energy creates energy. It is only by spending oneself wisely that one becomes rich in life.'
--Eleanor Roosevelt
UPDATE: This got us to thinking: what kinds of quotes & bromides from Michelle Obama might folks be repeating & admiring a half century from now? Thoughts, anyone?

Glad it resonated for you too, Michelle.I wonder what (if any) quotes/aphorisms by Michelle Obama we'll be pointing to in 50 years.

Did she actually say that, Mike, or are you saying that quote encapsulates her? Either way, I like it. Certainly the White House garden she's installed echoes back to Eleanor's victory garden campaign.

The "quote" refers to the commotion she created by going sleeveless at a White House event.
