I very much enjoyed a romp across the many aspects of Mr Garfield's cartographic views!

Winston S. Churchill
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
Winston S. Churchill

Oscar Wilde
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan

John Stuart Mill
“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse. When a people are used as mere human instruments for firing cannon or thrusting bayonets, in the service and for the selfish purposes of a master, such war degrades a people. A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war, carried on for an honest purpose by their free choice, — is often the means of their regeneration. A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever-renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other.”
John Stuart Mill, Principles of Political Economy

Winston S. Churchill
“My tastes are simple: I am easily satisfied with the best.”
Winston S. Churchill

Oscar Wilde
“A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing.”
Oscar Wilde
