From the New York Times:

My grandmother had a funny saying: “I’ve had an elegant sufficiency; any more would be a superflicity.” My sister in North Carolina reported a popular saying. “I’ve had a gracious plenty.” ~Georgia Ramos

I can't even count how many times I've heard my mother say, "gracious plenty." Gracious Plenty is a good thing to contemplate these days.
