Fine, give us bread but we must also have roses.

Philip Delves Broughton:

Wherever you look in the course of human history, at the centre of human life are people buying, selling & trading and offering their services to propel us forward as a race and I think it’s a very naive view of the world to separate business off as something corrupting and commercial, it’s not, it’s essential.

Fine, give us bread, but we must also have roses.
