For want of a nail
(Ben Franklin, 1706-1790)
For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for want of a nail.
Profound and deep yet simple!
One of the reasons I love surrounding myself with cool things, innovative and nice looking things. My own strategy to try and maximise the chances of happiness, peace of mind and success in my life. On the lines of ‘we are what we eat!’ or believe or surround ourselves with!
