Just seen a rather good libraries slogan, pity it's a bit long for a placard ...
Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries
|Library campaigners with placards outside the high court in December 2011 |
Attributed to Anne Herbert, an American writer, born 1952, of whom I know nothing. It seems she derived it from a quote of Gilbert Shelton (of whom I also know nothing): "Dope will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope."
Another of her pronouncements is: "Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty."
