Learn to like what doesn’t cost much.
Learn to like reading,
Learn to like simple food,
and simple cooking.
Learn to like fields, trees, brooks, hiking, rowing, climbing hills.
Learn to like people, even though some of them may be different…different from you.
Learn to like to work and enjoy the satisfaction of doing your job as well as it can be done.
Learn to like the songs of birds, the companionship of dogs.
Learn to like gardening,
puttering around the house and fixing things.
Learn to like the sunrise
the beating of the rain on the roof and windows,
and the gentle fall of snow on a winter’s day.
Learn to keep your wants simple,
and refuse to be controlled by the likes and dislikes of others.
