"Indeed, seeing that his expenditure was only one-fourth of his income, he might have been called a prosperous man."
I finished Return of the Native last night. Like I said, I've decided again that fiction is good. A friend of mine here asked me to loan her some English novels so I'll be passing this one onto her. I'd love to start an English-language bookstore or library here both for foreigners and locals.
Would you think yourself prosperous if you lived on 1/4 of your income?
