“The best things in life are free. The second best are very expensive.”
“The world is full of a vast number of beautiful things, but most of them are ephemeral. The dewdrop and the daffodil, the rainbow and the butterfly, last for a few moment or a few days and are gone, preserved only in memory. But precious gemstones, more than any other things which are lovely to the eye, endure, in terms of human measurement, eternally”.
Basil Anderson (1901 – 1984)
