At a party given by a billionaire on Shelter island, Kurt Vonnegut informs his pal, Joseph Heller that their host, a hedge fund manager, had made more money in a single day than Heller had earned from his wildly popular novel Catch-22 over its whole history.
Heller responds: Yes but I have something he will never have… Enough.

– John Bogle

“There are two things to aim in life;
First, to get what you want; and after that to enjoy it.
Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.”

I need to look back and be thankful for what I already have.
Sometimes I must be able to say “enough.”
