Words of Wisdom

Through the ages many have put universal wisdom to work to better their lives. Fortunately too, people from all walks of life have expressed wisdom in fine words that resonate timelessly across the world. We don’t need to reinvent Wisdom, the principles can be found everywhere.

The School will shortly provide a Words of Wisdom weekly mailing that will send a fresh and thought-provoking quotation to interested subscribers.

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."

TEST 1:    Sunsea 2- size 4kx3k - image not intentionally cropped by using the cropping tool (maybe by default)

RESULT:   A 400px-wide centre "column" from the full image is shown on site page; and 1080px (or 1079) high;  so, a deeper/taller image than 300px, and the text box is stretched to 1080 px to contain the deeper image. 

Dragging that image from the site page shows it is a full uncropped 1436x1080 at 96, in original proportions 4-3, so resized.

Dragging the image from the editing page shows it as a 400x300 thumbnail, but the complete image, not cropped.

Marcel Proust
