John Ruskin Quote: “When the whole world turns clown, and paints itself red with its own hearts blood instead of vermilion, it is something else than comic.”
John Ruskin Quote: “Production does not consist in things laboriously made, but in things serviceably consumable; and the question for the nation is not how much labour it employs, but how much life it produces.”
