What's Truly Free in
Someone once said that a free lunch isn't worth what you pay for it. Some Canadians, however, seem to believe in
a free lunch. Polling firm Ipsos-Reid asked 1001 Canadian adults what they thought was free in life. The following
were their responses although money wasn't on the list:
- Nothing (33 percent)
- The air we breath (18 percent)
- love and friendship (13 perent)
- happiness and smiles (6 percent)
- thought (3 percent)
- freedom of speech (2 percent)
- advice (1 percent)
To these we can add the word of Plautus: "The day, water, sun, moon, night ... I do not have to purchase these
things with money."
Don't go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you
nothing, it was here first.
— Mark Twain
