"Happiness is less important than trying to live in the right way" - Tolstoi

Quote

An ancient Greek said: "Resources held in common will be plundered, but those who own resources will nurture them."

Quote

"Politicians speak of a billion pounds as if it were nothing. In perspective: A billion seconds ago it was 1959; a billion years ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet; a billion pounds ago was only 13 hours & 12 minutes at the rate our Government is spending our tax money!"
