Toronto icon “Honest Ed” Mirvish died last week. Mirvish rose from poverty to become a successful businessman and a patron of the arts and a city builder.
I found this quote from Mirvish interesting from someone who knew both poverty and wealth. He said this about making piles of dough:
“I don’t think it’s that important once you’re not hungry. After a while, you’re nothing but a caretaker or a custodian.”
Profound and reminds me of a Proverb I’ve read a few times – “Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.” Wise words.
