"Wear the old coat & buy the new book."
- Austin Phelps
I came across this quote today while I was browsing the web. This quote stood out to me for multiple reasons. First of all, this quote explains my life and the way I think! I always think of the money I am spending and what I would rather spend it on. When I buy a meal at a restaurant, I automatically look at the price and think that I could have bought a book or two for that price! Second of all, I just love the picture it paints in my mind. I think of a person wearing an old dirty coat because they would rather have books. This person would rather spend money on adventures and friends, rather than clothes, style, and other material items. He or she cares more about being able to travel every dimension of the world, instead of his or her looks and personal style.
What do you guys think? How does this quote make you feel? Let me know in the comments below! I absolutely love comments. Thanks for reading!
