WHEN YOU CAN HAVE ANYTHING

Generative Collage by Sergio Albiac

She doesn't have a ring on each finger, or a big diamond on each ring. 

She doesn't wear a gold watch that costs as much as a fancy car. 
In fact, she doesn't own a fancy car. 

She doesn't carry an enormous designer bag. 
But she might have a newspaper under her arm. 

She might mention Sartre or Foucault in a conversation. 
It's her personality that sparkles and nothing else: 
the signs of intellectual wealth.

  2. YES to this post. I'm a huge believer and hold to great value intellectual wealth. What is material wealth when one cannot fathom the wonders of this world, when one cannot think and make connections, when one cannot see beauty in intricacies? I love love love this, and the art work is gorgeous!

  17. I really need to buy this book! I completely agree about the rings - i like my daisy ring or plain gold band, simplicity is best :) After studying Foucault though i think i would struggle there! I really love your blog, different from what i usually read and so refreshing x

    wonderful quote, I never thought of myself as a Parisian type, because I like bold colours and pattern mixing, but I can surely mention Sartre (and many others) in a conversation so maybe there is a bit of French chic in me:)

  32. Dear May! You're so right! I'm happy you get the message behind this post, the more older I get the more I realize how unimportant all the materialism is. As many other things, I wish I knew that before, especially at that age of yours, my dear! I can't stop telling how smart and intelligent you are!!! Never lose your curiousity about the world and it's secrets!!! Hug you!!

  36. Dear Sophie! Your wonderful comment makes me happy! Simplicity is key, when it comes to lifestyle and fashion. I didn't studied Foucault (unfortunately) but I'm more than sure I would struggle there too! Thank you so much for the amazing feedback, Sophie! I deeply appreciate it!
