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)
