V is for... Variety

Today I was thinking about the letter "V" and what I could post on.

Immediately I thought about the well known and often used quote "variety is the spice of life."

I have used this quote very often and I like to think that I try to have a lot of variety in my life. 

However, the more I thought about it, I realized that I did not really know where the quote came from or what it really was intended to signify.

I decided to do a quick Google search and see what I could come up with.

According to Wiki and a couple other sites, the quote "variety is the spice of life" comes from British poet William Cowper from the 1700s (source).

    Variety in our lives is very much the spice of life!
