"My parents are Dutch, and they used their china, their silver, every day. I think it's a largely American mentality to save 'best' things for later, to protect them so much that you don't enjoy them. They didn't do that in Holland. If something happened to an old platter, that simply added to its story, because it happened in your life. It became a memory instead of a scar. Authenticity rules!" -Annie Brahler.
