QuotesEdit

  • I've got pennies for my thoughts; now I'm rich.

If you invest your tuppence wisely in the bank
  Safe and sound
Soon that tuppence, safely invested in the bank
  Will compound!
And you'll achieve that sense of conquest
  As your affluence expands
In the hands of the directors
  Who invest as propriety demands
