Well worth contemplating in this age of immediate knowledge which is updated/discarded so quickly: an information diet.

Thank you.

Becca, thank you for this noteworthy quote, it fits perfectly for the first day of a New Year, food for thought, indeed!

Happy New Year from Vienna,
to you and your loved ones,
Merisi
