“Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well.  Then youth will be delightful, old age will bring few regrets, and life become a beautiful success, in spite of poverty.”

– Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

I have loved the 1990s film adaptation of Little Women since it came out.  If I had to count how many times I’ve seen that movie, it would be borderline embarrassing.  More embarrassing still is the fact that I’m only just now reading Little Women for the first time.  I love that this book is peppered every so often with little pearls of wisdom like this quote.
