Labor is the true alchemist that beats out in patient transmutation the baser metals into gold.william morley punshon
Go far too far you cannot, still the farther The more experience finds you: And go sparing; One meal a week will serve you, and one suit, Through all your travels; for you'll find it certain, The poorer and the baser you appear, The more you look through still.

The strawberry grows underneath the nettle And wholesome berries thrive and ripen best Neighbour'd by fruit of baser quality.william shakespeare
