A cartoon about aspiration, achievement and happiness.
Proverbs about the moon.
This aspirational cartoon is titled “A Chinese Proverb” although I actually thought it up myself.
The saying is: “Aim at the moon and you will harpoon a fish. Aim at a fish and you will harpoon a fish. So you may as well aim at the moon.”
The cartoon is suggesting that it might be a good idea to set your sights on something higher than you expect to achieve in order to achieve the lesser goal. The important thing is not to be disappointed when you don’t achieve that higher goal.
A cartoon about aspiration, drive, ambition, foresight, optimism.

Cartoon: Steve Jobs dies
Editorial cartoon on the subject of the death of Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple computers.
Jobs quit his role as ceo of Apple several months ago due to ill health.
Showing the Apple logo falling from an apple tree, illustrating the death of Steve Jobs and perhaps illustrating Apple’s share price falling as a result (probably in several years’ time).
Rene Magritte cartoon parody of The Son of Man (French: Le fils de l’homme)
The image shows a banker with a coin in front of his face based on the Magritte image of a man with an apple in front of his face
The idea behind this image is that bankers (and others in the finance industry) see only money and profit. This is implied by the coin that is floating in front of the face of the banker, blocking his perception of anything else but money
A comment on finance, capitalism, priorities
The £ sign on the coin can be changed to any other currency
