Thought for the Day
The man who has nothing to boast of
but his illustrious ancestors is like a potato,
the only good belonging to him is under-ground.
~ Thomas Overbury
Sir Thomas Overbury (baptized 1581 – 15 September 1613) was an English poet and essayist, also known for being the victim of a murder which led to a scandalous trial. His poem A Wife, which depicted the virtues that a young man should demand of a woman, played a large role in the events that precipitated his murder. source
