Ada (my 5yo) & I collaborated on an illustration of The Miller’s Tale. She drew the farts.
random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
But the rich man ... is always sold to the institution which makes him rich. Absolutely speaking, the more money, the less virtue; for money comes between a man and his objects, and obtains them for him; and it was certainly no great virtue to obtain it. It puts to rest many questions which he would otherwise be taxed to answer; while the only new question which it puts is the hard but superfluous one, how to spend it. Thus his moral ground is taken from under his feet.
