“Wanting less feels like getting more.” The Best Six-Word Memoirs of the Week

Sixes of the Week 2014 09 13-19

Looking for guidance? Look no further. This week’s memoirists used their insights to create the most thought-provoking Sixes (“Wanting less feels like getting more.”). Take heed: whether sharing advice on how to have your cake and eat it, too (“Avoid disappointments. Leave room for dessert.”), or passing down wisdom from one generation to the next (“Mama said, ‘Nice ’em to death.’”), these Sixers seem to know what they’re talking about.  –Allison Volpe
