Wisdom from the greatest voices of reason who are, or have ever been, in our world

19th February

In '29 when the banks went bust,

Our coins still read 'In God We Trust'.

E Y Harburg

How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?”

William Shakespeare

This is the first test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no
possible value to him.

William Lyon Phelps

It is better to suffer wrong than to do it, and happier to be sometimes cheated than not to trust.

Dr Samuel Johnson

The trouble is that rich people, well-to-do people, very often don't really know who the poor are; and that is why we can forgive them, for knowledge can only lead to love, and love to service. And so, if they are not touched by them, it's because they do not know them.

Mother Theresa
