An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





The Landlord is a gentleman who does not earn his wealth. He has a host of agents and clerks that receive for him. He does not even take the trouble to spend his wealth. He has a host of people around him to do the actual spending. He never sees it until he comes to enjoy it. His sole function, his chief pride, is the stately consumption of wealth produced by others.


David Lloyd George (1863-1945, British Prime Minister)


Landlords, like all other men, love to reap where they never sowed.


Karl Marx (1818-1883, German political theorist, social philosopher)


With one hand he put a penny in the urn of poverty, and with the other took a shilling out.


Robert Pollok (1798-1827, Scottish religious poet)
