Necessities & Comforts of Life

'Eight hours daily labour is enough for any human being, and under proper arrangements sufficient to afford an ample supply of food, raiment and shelter, or the necessaries and comforts of life, and for the remainder of his time, every person is entitled to education, recreation and sleep'.'

Happy birthday, Robert Owen, philanthropist and guru of the Victorian era. With thanks to the #UniversityofPlymouth.
