Those of you who have already visited the New Era website ( www.newerafi.co.uk ) will probably have found out that I’m a fan of the occasional quote or two from those wiser than me.

I’ve collected over 140 over the past few years and they get posted randomly on the site by a clever plugin or widget ingeniously designed by the folks at WordPress.

Here are 20 of my favourites:
