Quote of the Day (John Ruskin, on How ‘There Is No Wealth But Life’)

“There is no wealth but life. Life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admiration. That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest numbers 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.” — English art critic and social commentator John Ruskin (1819-1900), Unto This Last (1860)
