I am loving all the different 'Keep Calm' merchandise around at the moment!
The book is great; it's one of those small hardback books you keep in the loo and is full of quotes from a variety of famous people giving advice, encouragement or social comment. I thought I'd share a few with you this Wednesday morning!
"Credit is a system whereby a person who can not pay gets another person who can not pay to guarantee that he can pay". Charles Dickens (1812-1870) Dickens was way ahead of his time with this one.
There are lots of sections to this book. One of my favourites is the section on change. I love this quote: "The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimensions" Ellen Glasgow (1873-1945) It really makes you think doesn't it?!
I find little 'loo' books like these a reminder to my soul that there's always a different perspective to be had on everything.
I highly recommend the book and it's only a fiver. Money well spent this Wednesday!
Interestingly, "The poster was initially produced by the Ministry of Information, in 1939, at the beginning of the Second World War. It was intended to be distributed in order to strengthen morale in the event of a wartime disaster. 2,500,000 copies were printed, although the poster was distributed only in limited numbers. The designer of the poster is not known." (Thanks Wiki!)
Here's to keeping calm and carrying on today!
