A wise person should have money in their head

Jonathan Swift

Jonathan Swift (1667 - 1745) was born and educated in Ireland, but moved to England in his early twenties, and became an ordained priest. In 'Gulliver's Travels', he created a book that has been one of the most consistently popular books written in the eighteenth century, and probably the finest prose satire in the English language.
