A Chesterton Quote For Today

Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than than Shakespeare. --- G. K. Chesterton from "What's Wrong With the World", Chapter IV "The Romance of Thrift" (1910)
