Quote of the day

The choice of a prince’s ministers is a matter of no little importance; they are either good or not according to the prudence of the prince. The first impression that one gets of a ruler and of his brains is from seeing the men that he has about him. When they are competent and faithful one can always consider him wise, as he has been able to recognize their ability and keep them faithful. But when they are the reverse, one can always form an unfavorable opinion of him, because the first mistake that he makes is in making his choice.

The week is also a transitional one for the fourth-quarter earnings reporting period in that it brings the last big group of earnings pre-announcements history of anniversary rings which are typically more negative than positive — and the first big group of actual earnings reports engagement rings http://www.natalia-diamonds.com/
