Warning Before Shopping


The next time you go shopping remember these wise words and save yourself some money in the process.

“The consumer society is a giant tranquilliser for raw nerves.”

Professor Theodore Zeldin, Oxford University


I’ve chosen the photograph above from my growing (groaning more like judging from the weight) collection not necessarily for religious reasons but because it’s such a beautiful stained glass window.  It reminds me to look upwards mentally and spiritually as well as physically.

As regards the Zeldin quote, I think I should print it off and stick it on the side of my purse.

Church is St Mary, Hadleigh, Suffolk, UK
