With grateful thanks to the anonymous owner of the poster, I was inspired to research Woody Guthrie. I rapidly discovered that I have reached this ripe old age without fully appreciating Guthrie's simple but powerful quotes including; "If we would just take the profit out of war, there wouldn't be any".
However, my personal favourite has to be the following;
"Any fool can make something complicated, but it takes a genius to make it simple."
- Woody Guthrie
