Savings of Lifetime

Condensed from The Saturday Evening Post
Margaret Culkin Banning

WE WERE rnl.lcnvG of a man we all knew, and someone remarked, in the customary tones of horror, that the savings of his lifetime had all been swept away. Perhaps the lady who answered back had heard those words once too often. She said sharply, "You mean that he lost his money."
The mourner nodded. "That's what I said."
"No," said the lady, "you didn't say that. You told us that the savings of his lifetime were gone, which is not true. He has a mind stored full of knowledge and experience. He has made large investments in charities and educations for other people-investments which haven't depreciated and are yielding a return to society today. He's saved his simple habits and his pleasure in living. Don't worry about him. Worry about yourself if the savings of your lifetime are all the kind that can be swept away in a depression."
I know a woman who has saved more responsibilities than anything else during the seven decades of her life. She has seen more family troubles than most of us could endure. She has watched money come and go. Now her income must be no more than a wisp, and her responsibilities are bountiful. She always has relatives who come to her, as do her friends, because she has saved so much human warmth and courage. If she were like the people of her own age, she would be old and tired. But during her lifetime she has saved enough competence and energy to keep herself going.
It is illuminating to make a mental list of the people you know who could stand up under poverty. Miss M. seemed to have saved nothing with which to meet the emergencies of life except money, and when that was gone she was desperately afraid of existence.
