TRY GIVING YOURSELF AWAY

I said it was.
"Well, you certainly are going to have a box in this post office if we have to make one for you. You don't know what a letter like that means to us. We usually get nothing but kicks."
I had a box within the hour. Bread upon the waters!
After years of experience, this is how I have come to feel about my hobby: I have a job which pays me a living, so why should I try to drive a sharp bargain with the world for the extra ideas and impulses that come to me? I say let the world have them if they are of any value. I get my compensation out of feeling that I am a part of the life of my times, doing what I can to make things more interesting and exciting for other people. And that makes life more interesting and exciting for me, and keeps my mind keener.
As if this were not enough, I find that friends multiply and good things come to me from every direction. I've decided the world insists on balancing accounts with givers-away-provided their hands aren't outstretched for return favors.

The Three Pound Rule
THE REASON most people grow fat is that they wait until they are fat before they do anything about it. A woman has a mental picture of herself as a slim young thing that, unfortunately, she's likely to keep until she's 20 pounds away from resembling it. Then nothing but long hard diet and training will do anything for her. I'd like to tell every slim young thing to watch the first three pounds she gains. Then she will never have to worry about the others, for anyone can lose three pounds in a week on a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables.
-Ina Claire, quoted in The Saturday Evening Post
