150 Pearls of Wisdom

During the year Charterhouse’s academic scholars will be sharing adages and words of advice through our Instagram @charterhousesch. The first pearls are provided by John Wesley OC (founder of the Methodist Church) and Laura Galbraith (Second Year Specialist in Fletcherites):

Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.

John Wesley OC

Look after yourself; you can’t pour from an empty cup.

Laura Galbraith, Second Year Specialist

The art of music above all the other arts is the expression of the soul of a nation.

 Ralph vaughan williams ocThe object of government in peace and in war is not the glory of rulers or of races, but the happiness of the common man.

William Beverigde ocLife is what happens while you're busy making other plans.

 John Lennon

Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.
