Bryce Courtney …

Bryce Courtney died today 23/11/12, leaving us significantly diminished.

” It seems to me we’re obsessed with having things. We put ourselves in debt for thirty years in order to own a house. We work at thankless jobs we hate for thirty years in order to have sufficient money to retire in security and to die in absolute obscurity.

There is another way. The idea is to dream up the things you want to do and make them happen.

Life is not about HAVING things, life is about DOING things.

Doing things usually has a rewarding result. You either make more money than you need without being bored in the process, or you discover that you don’t really need all that fiscal security to live happily ever after.

You also die smiling.”

An excerpt from his “A Recipe for Dreaming” (1994)
