“Did youth but know what age would crave, many a penny youth would save.”
This is the motto carved in stone above the entrance door of a Savings-Banks in Leeds. When we are young, it is hard to imagine what we shall feel like, and what we shall want, when we are old. But if we could, we should be careful, while we are able to work and earn money, to put something away for our old age. To save requires imagination; thrift means foresight.
