Every day I start the day by looking for a quotation which engages me with whatever is within that day. I then go to my twitter account @canisgallicus and I “paste” the quote, with a comment added by me to a variety of tweeters who may be interested – these days it mostly relates to COVID-19.

be learned going forward. Charlie Chaplin –
Final Speech from The Great Dictator
