THE BENEFITS OF STARTING ONE’S COLLECTION OF EASY RECIPES FOR EACH DAY

01 Mar

When in some books you find counsels and precepts which may be of use to you in your every-day household occupations, you hasten to copy the recipe, and ever after you consult it.

Do this much for the guidance of your soul; preserve in your memory, or, better still, write down, the counsels and maxims which you hear or read; then consult, now and then, this collection, which will please you all the better as you yourself have gathered it together.

Books written by others fatigue us, sooner or later; we are never wearied by those written by ourselves.

This collection of thoughts will be your own; you have selected them because they pleased you. They form advice which you have given to yourself – moral recipes which you have discovered, and whose efficacy you most likely have proved. Happy is the soul which gathers a little every day.

– From: Golden Grains, Eighth Edition, H.M. Gill and Son, Dublin, 1889
