There Is No Wealth But Life, Annual Report of the Art Museum and University Settlement, 1902
The moral and social philosophy John Ruskin was a strong influence on the founders of both the Art Museum and the University Settlement. This quote is from Ruskin's book, Unto This Last, in which he criticised the capitalist system and its promotion of economic inequality. Here Ruskin offers an alternative vision of 'wealth' - namely, the happiness of human beings.
