The Pearl Fairies in this book are matched with sayings, both profound and nonsensical, which I have gathered over my lifetime.
Here, a few, Pearls of “Wisedom’:
“It is better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.” Diane Grant
“There is no fundamental difference between man and animals in their ability to feel pleasure or pain, happiness and misery.” Charles Darwin
“It is not necessary to believe in God to be a good person, In a way the traditional notion of God is outdated. One can be spiritual but not religious. It is not necessary to go to church and give money, for many nature can be a church. Some of the best people in history did not believe in God, while some of the worst deeds were done in His name. Pope Francis
I have endeavoured to acknowledge the authors where possible, and welcome the chance to verify any uncredited attributions in the next edition.
