Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Ballad of Lidil and Aldi (MacConnell)
Subject: RE: The ballad of Lidil and Aldi

According to Diogenes Laertius, Socrates used to exclaim at the market: "How many things exist that I can do without!" Anonymous variant: "There are so many cheap things, that you save a lot of money if you don't buy them!"
