T-111 : Dollar Zingers

I love thoughts.  Today I attended a forum in which Jonathan W. Bullen, President of Colmena Capital spoke.  Here's my favorite zinger out of all those he shared:
We are not to judge thrift solely by the test of saving or spending.  If one spends what he should prudently save, that certainly is to be deplored.  But if one saves what he should prudently spend, that is not necessarily to be commended.  A wise balance between the two is the desired end. 
Owen Young
So, again, it comes down to B-A-L-A-N-C-E.  Where are you on the save/spend spectrum?

Speaking of zingers, do you remember when those tasty snack cakes first came out?  I think I was in about 3rd grade so it would have been 1975ish.  They were like the cheap version of Twinkies.  If you want to read the rest of them you'll have to click http://www.evernote.com/shard/s9/sh/770d7326-d2fd-4c82-909b-55a479e38b2f/3367ce33438eb3a491437e814ef6c40c.
