At the launch of Stride Treglown’s 10 Essays To Shape Future Places yesterday Duncan Cadbury, chair of the Bournville Village Trust, gave out a copy of George Cadbury’s ‘Suggested Rules of Health’ dating from circa 1890.
Among the often sage and surprisingly timeless advice, it contained this pearl of wisdom:
“Anger and worry will wear you out much more rapidly than hard work. Cultivate a cheerful and thankful spirit.”
It was really interesting to hear Duncan and Iain Tuckett, chief executive of Coin Street Community Builders talking about creating sustainable and viable communities and I’m proud to have had a small role working on this thought-provoking book.
