Ben Stein’s Lessons in Gratitude

Comments (4)

This week’s Sunday New York Times was a treasure trove.  In addition to having an incredible NY Times Magazine this week (Money 2005), Ben Stein had a phenomenal essay titled “Lessons in Gratitude, at the Basement Sink.”  In contrast to the articles in the Magazine (money, money, money), Stein asserts that “Gratitude … is the only totally reliable get-rich-quick scheme.”  He finishes with a lesson his dad taught him: “The zen of dishwashing.  The zen of gratitude.  The zen of riches.” 

Everyone should read this – and be grateful for whatever you have today.
