“Give me the luxuries of life and I will willingly do without the necessities.”
Frank Lloyd Wright
I think that there is a lot hidden in this tongue in cheek quote. Much food for thought. Frank Lloyd Wright always seemed to have the best of everything and often was in debt. However, we have been talking on this blog of new ways to think and manifest. Wright apparently focused on luxury knowing that in order to have luxury appear in one’s life the requisite funding and or conditions to provide luxury would easily provide the necessities. So in essence he would never do without the necessities.
Secondly, Wright was drawn to the luxuries not because he needed to impress anyone with them. He was drawn to them for the the sheer beauty of the experience and appreciation for things well-made.
In this sense the message is to focus on those material things and comforts we truly want to experience, not as a means to something else, but for the pure joy of the experience.
