Quote for the Day

“Those people cannot enjoy comfortably what God has given them because they see and covet what He has not given them. All of our discontents for what we want appear to me to spring from want of thankfulness for what we have.” 

Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe

Bytes Bonus:

“Thus we never see the true state of our condition till it is illustrated to us by its contraries, nor know how to value what we enjoy, but by the want of it.” 

Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe

First edition, `1719
