Description


"Yes, he's one of those men that don't know how to manage. Good situation.Regular income. Quite enough for luxuries as well as needs. Not really extravagant.And yet the fellow's always in difficulties. Somehow he gets nothing out of hismoney. Excellent flat-half empty Always looks as if he'd had the brokers in. Newsuit-old hat Magnificent necktie-baggy trousers Asks you to dinner: cut glass-bad mutton, or Turkish coffee-cracked cup He can't understand it. Explanationsimply is that he fritters his income away. Wish I had the half of it I'd show him-"So we have most of us criticised, at one time or another, in our superior way.We are nearly all chancellors of the exchequer: it is the pride of the moment.Newspapers are full of articles explaining how to live on such-and-such a sum, andthese articles provoke a correspondence whose violence proves the interest theyexcite. Recently, in a daily organ, a battle raged round the question whether awoman can exist nicely in the country on L85 a year. I have seen an essay, "How tolive on eight shillings a week." But I have never seen an essay, "How to live ontwenty-four hours a day." Yet it has been said that time is money. That proverbunderstates the case. Time is a great deal more than money. If you have time youcan obtain money-usually. But though you have the wealth of a cloak-roomattendant at the Carlton Hotel, you cannot buy yourself a minute more time than Ihave, or the cat by the fire has.
