Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need — a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

I really like the analogy – especially at a time when I am trying to declutter so thank you – imagining all my belongings needing to fit on a boat is a good one – and the picture is lovely.
Lovely piece. So calming.
