“Normality is a paved road:  It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.” -Vincent Van Gogh

“Reflection involves not simply a sequence of ideas, but a consequence – a consecutive ordering in such a way that each determines the next as its proper outcome, while each in turn leans back on its predecessors.  The successive portions of the reflective thought grow out of one another and support one another; they do not come and go in a medley.  Each phase is a step from something to something – technically speaking, it is a term of thought.” -John Dewey

A resource you have built and control is worth more than a resource someone else maintains and loans to you.  This seems obvious and logical.  But, it is much easier to simply rely on someone else who has already built it than to grow it yourself.  Consider long term costs when considering how you develop your money reserve.

“‘Old Money’ families take the long-term view.  These families know how to turn time into an ally instead of an enemy….  And they have worked out ways to use time to prepare the family not only to protect money, but to make it grow….  The truly wealthy are careful to spend their money on things that hold their value over time.” -Bill Bonner
