Quote of the Day (Edith Wharton, on ‘The Only Way Not to Think About Money’)

“The only way not to think about money is to have a great deal of it.” — Pulitzer Prize-winning American fiction writer Edith Wharton (1862-1937), The House of Mirth (1905)

The image accompanying this post comes from the very fine 2000 adaptation of Edith Wharton’s classic novel, showing heroine Lily Bart (played by Gillian Anderson) with the confidante she shares this line with about money, the middle-class lawyer Lawrence Selden (played by Eric Stoltz).
