the micawber principle

Mr. Micawber, and a cat.

Resident Expert advocates this basic advice from Mr. Micawber. ResEx applies this principle to many things, all the time.

“Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen pounds nineteen shillings and six pence, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds and six pence, result misery.”

There you have it.
