 Driving vs flying - Runfer D'Hills
My father wasn't poor, but nor was he rich. However, the philosophy I've inherited from him is to buy once, but buy good and enjoy the experience.

He had very few possessions, his clothes and shoes fitted easily into a small single wardrobe, but they were all good quality. Bespoke suits etc. He kept his cars a long time, but he always had good ones by the standards of the day. Same with watches, pens, wallets, tools, furniture etc.

Keeping for best simply wasn't in his vocabulary, he treated every day as if it was the best day of his life so far. His enthusiasm was infectious and although he passed more than 40 years ago, I am still encouraged and guided by his attitudes.
