Words of Wisdom – John Ruskin

“Life, including all its powers of love, of joy and of admiration. That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest number of noble and happy human beings; that man is richest who, having perfected the functions of his own life to the utmost, has also the widest helpful influence, both personal and by means of his possessions over the lives of others.”

– John Ruskin (8 February 1819 – 20 January 1900). Prominent English art critic, patron of the arts,

draughtsman, watercolourist, social thinker and philanthropist.
