Learning Business and Real Estate From Board Games

    What happens in a strike happens not to one person alone.... It is a crisis with meaning and potency for all and prophetic of a future. The elements in crisis are the same, there is a fermentation that is identical. The elements are these: a body of men, women and children, hungry; an organization of feudal employers out to break the back of unionization; and the government Labor Board sent to “negotiate” between this hunger and this greed.
    Meridel Le Sueur (b. 1900)

    Criticism occupies the lowest place in the literary hierarchy: as regards form, almost always; and as regards moral value, incontestably. It comes after rhyming games and acrostics, which at least require a certain inventiveness.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)

    I ‘gin to be aweary of the sun,
    And wish th’ estate o’ the world were now undone.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    “Miss C_____’s father,” says Betty, “had much better have bred his daughter a housewife, and then, mayhap, she might have got her a husband, which with all her fine learning she has not yet been able to do. And no wonder, for what man would be plagued with a slattern?”
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    I have always had something to live besides a personal life. And I suspected very early that to live merely in an experience of, in an expression of, in a positive delight in the human cliches could be no business of mine.
    Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)

    A decent chap, a real good sort,
    Straight as a die, one of the best,
    A brick, a trump, a proper sport,
    Head and shoulders above the rest;
    How many lives would have been duller
    Had he not been here below?
    Here’s to the whitest man I know
    Though white is not my favourite colour.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
