I don't know about wise words, but my old post here may be of interest. :)

About inflation of money mentioned above :: the original value of British money before any inflation was that £1-worth of silver coins weighed a pound avoirdupois (= 16 ounces) and could buy a pound weight of silver metal, and that is where the pound unit of money came from.

Don't take too many sniffs or you will be too stoned to worry about finding a queen ....
