Take time to pray.. it is the greatest power on earth. Take time to laugh÷ it is the music of the soul. Take time to give÷ it is too short a day to be selfish.

Anon xx

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!
