Our Garrick’s a salad; for in him we see, oil,vinegar,sugar and saltiness agreeOliver Goldsmith 1730-1774

Dost thou think because thou art virtuous there shall be no more cakes and ale?William Shakespeare 1564-1616

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.” Ludwig Erhard 1897-1977
