Quotable Adlai Stevenson

30 Aug

“It is not the years in your life
but the life in your years that counts!”
~Adlai E. Stevenson (1835-1914), 23rd US Vice-President

I loved this quote when I saw it.  It was an excellent reminder of my need to prioritise properly.  I think it’s important that I remember that doing the best that I can at my job is always the goal.  But an even more important goal is to have work-life balance.  All work and no play makes Yelly a very dull girl!

I think this quote is very apt for the Tuesday right after the bank holiday Monday when everyone (in the UK anyway) is wondering why they got out of bed this morning.  And the goal is to find balance (a small cynical voice in my head is saying, “Well good luck with that!”)!
