Nunquam inutilis est opera civis boni

Nothing is wasted in service to the common good

Among other joys today (the first day of term for my Edinburgh dance class, for example) I loved a brief visit to the fabulous National Portrait Gallery of Scotland. I came away, of course, with a large number of impressions, but the one that echoes in me this evening is the Latin inscription atop the fine Memorial to Founder John Ritchie Findlay. Seated in this hallowed hall today I was glad to reflect that ‘nothing is wasted in service to the common good.’
