What if Leo Fender had developed a computer:
it would have had good R&D, work straight out of the box, be easily repairable if it broke & would be fit for purpose...so much purpose.
If we can't have Stephanie Finch for prime minister, how about Gareth Southgate or Guy Watson?
What if - instead of "kills 99.9% of all known viruses and bacteria" - the truth on household cleaners appreared thus: "kills all but nearly 400,000 of known viruses and bacteria".
What if the expression "the 3 Rs" showed more literacy & more focus upon real education.
What if reading, (w)riting & (a)rithmatic came after respect, reason & responsibility...perhaps we'd not need words like 'rights' or 'justice'...
Many thanks to Thomas Hiscocks for suggesting:
Samuel Beckett's “Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
& from Annelies Frank's “No one has ever become poor by giving.”
...& our favourite from Ruskin: “There is no wealth but life."...
& thought-provoking from Boris Pasternak:
“…there are no nations, but only persons.” (from Dr. Zhivago)
