Name: Maggie Smith
Born: 28 December 1934 (Age: 75)
Where: Ilford, England
Awards: Won 2 Oscars, 5 BAFTAs, 2 Golden Globes, 1 Emmy
All about this star
When considering the Great British Thespians of recent generations, people have a tendency to think Male. There was Olivier, Gielgud, and Richardson, then Paul Schofield, Derek Jacobi and on to new arrivals like Alan Rickman and Ralph Fiennes . Yet, of course, there was a female axis, a series of stage stars that would put the willies up any egocentric male lead. Judi Dench Vanessa Redgrave , Glenda Jackson, Diana Rigg, Fiona Shaw, all carry the weight and authority to steal the show, anytime, anywhere. And there's another: a woman so focused on her work she has never, ever courted celebrity: so protective of her private life she has been nominated for Oscars on six separate occasions, winning twice, yet we know next to nothing about her. Stand up Maggie Smith, arguably Britain's finest living actor. According to Jacobi, who began his career with her at the fledgling National Theatre: "Being onstage with someone like Maggie Smith, who thinks at the speed of lightning . . . that's a lesson in itself. Unless you keep up, you are lost". Praise comes no higher.
She was born Margaret Nathalie Smith on the 28th of December, 1934, in Ilford, making her perhaps the world's best respected Essex Girl. Her mother, Margaret Hutton Little, was a Scot, her father Nathaniel Smith hailing from Newcastle, maybe explaining why Maggie has been so successful when playing gritty Northern characters. There were also two brothers, twins Ian and Alistair (good Scottish names, both), born six years earlier.

Artist Listing: A - F G - R S - Z "No other lyricist so vividly captured the unbearable plight of the lonely, heartbroken, and disenfranchised. No other vocalist sang with such beauty, bravely crooning where others would simply shout. No other pop star dressed as well or had a better hairstyle than Morrissey . ... Guitarist Johnny Marr provided the perfect musical accompaniment to Morrissey 's tales of loneliness while bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce provided the sturdy backbone."
The Smiths Discography - Album / CD Reviews

"What Morrissey captures above all is a notion of despair reflected perfectly in the lacklustre sound of his cohorts, a death of the punk ideals that Morrissey is quite old enough to have been closely involved in. In turn what distinguishes him from a Weller is firstly his wit, and secondly the sensitivitiy to deal in despair without resorting to preaching in desperation.

Two Box Structure
Stainless steel,
165 3/4" x 53" x 27 1/2".
Courtesy of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It may not be possible to reach further as an artist than David Smith did, within and outside himself. The connections he made and the structures he devised to hold things together describe the limits of human comprehension, within a universe that is both reflected by and unconcerned with that comprehension. In Two Box Structure of 1961 the shapes couldn't be simpler, all stainless steel: two fairly large, flat rectangles, a smaller rectangular base, an even smaller circle at the top, and a number of long, mostly vertical linear elements connecting the other shapes in various ways. Standing on the ground, we are at the level of the horizontal rectangle, which has two legs (linear elements) supporting it. Another linear element extends far up from this rectangle and finally reaches the small circle some thirteen feet off the ground. This circle might be taken for a head, in the manner of Picasso's pin-headed Harlequin of 1915, connected to the body below, or perhaps the sun, also connected to the shapes below. Then the vertical rectangle could be another torso, supported by very long linear elements that bend like knees or elbows, so they appear to be oriented both upward and downward. There is some kind of "figure" here, and it is playing with our perceptions, particularly when we realize that the rectangles are like pictures that reflect light (when it is there), and absorb the surrounding colors into their steely surfaces. There are ways in which none of this may be pertinent.

by Nadia Weiner, Director of the Adam Smith Club of Sydney, Australia
Although Adam Smith is often quoted, the so-called "Father of Economics" has rarely been read, either by his detractors or his admirers. Consequently he is often misunderstood. Smith, who made such a strong stand against the protectionist mercantile system of trade of his day, devoted over ONE THIRD of his masterpiece An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, to discussing the subject of government revenue and the methods by which it may be best collected, including new taxes. This is not generally known. When examining the different forms of taxation, Smith adheres to four maxims which a good tax should conform to:

Brief Biography Quotes from The Wealth of Nations
  • It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.
  • directing that industry in such a manner as its produce may be of the greatest value, he intends only his own gain, and he is in this...led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention.
  • No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable.
  • If a foreign country can supply us with a commodity cheaper than we ourselves can make it, better buy it of them with some part of the produce of our own industry employed in a way in which we have some advantage.
  • It is the highest impertinence and presumption, therefore, in kings and ministers, to pretend to watch over the economy of private people, and to restrain their expense, either by sumptuary laws, or by prohibiting the importation of foreign luxuries.

Adam Smith
- Nature provide a basis in sentiment for virtue. - When we adopt the role of impartial spectators, sympathy is the sentiment that is the basis for moral judgments. - Acting from a sense of duty corrects for any lack of appropriate sentiment in particular instances. - The deity has implanted powerful instincts (passions), which lead us behave in ways that are ultimately beneficial for all. - Self-interest coupled with the predisposition to 'trade', 'barter', and 'exchange' provides a basis for the division of labor and economic development. - In a market free from monopolies and self-serving public policies, competition among the self-interests of isolated consumers and producers produces a stable and expanding economy. - The self-interested pursuit of wealth may not be individually satisfying but leads to an aggregate increase in wealth that is in the best interests of a nation.
