From a clipping found in my new TREASURE 1885 copy of The Farm and Household Cyclopedia, which I got for $3 at the flea market yesterday but which you can read online for free! http://www.archive.org/stream/farmhouseholdcyc00luptuoft

An Old Lady's Way

A happy and vigorous old lady in New Hampshire gives these rules for the secret of success of 80 years' living on this planet, which brings so much care and worry to many of her sisters:  “"I never allow myself to fret over things I cannot help. I take a nap, and sometimes two, every day of my life. I never take my washing, ironing, or baking to bed with me, and I try to oil all the various wheels of a busy life with an implicit belief that there are a brain and a heart to this great universe, and that I can trust them both.” - Chicago Tribune
