G K Chesterton On the Art of Stewardship

Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance…thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste…If a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare.
