If thou of fortune be bereft
And in thy store there be but left
Two loaves, sell one, and with the dole
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.
Moslih Eddin Saadi
Another variation on this idea, from China I believe, is that if you only have enough money for two bowls of rice, you should buy one so that you can live, and a lily so that you have something to live for.....
What nourishes your soul? And can you do it today?
