Thought for the Day
“Take care of the minutes
and the hours will take care of themselves.”
~ Phillip Dormer Stanhope
*Philip Dormer Stanhope
4th Earl of Chesterfield PC KG, a British statesman and man of letters. A Whig, Lord Stanhope, as he was known until his father’s death in 1726, was born in London. After being educated at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, he went on the Grand Tour of the continent. The death of Anne and the accession of George I opened up a career for him and brought him back to England. His relative James Stanhope, the king’s favourite minister, procured for him the place of gentleman of the bedchamber to the Prince of Wales.
