From the studio wall

We are too busy mopping the floor to turn off the faucet.

~ Author Unknown

A bit of fragrance clings to the hand that gives flowers.

~ Chinese proverb

If I had a mine shaft, I don't think I would just abandon it. There's got to be a better way.

~Jack Handy, "Deep Thoughts"

Love the mopping the floor one but the mineshaft one hasn't hit home yet although I started laughing when I read it.

I think Jack Handy's humor might be an acquired taste, Sheila. This one might be more culture-specific, too. In America, an "abandoned mine" conjures up romantic images of bygone prospector days in the old west.

I like these quotes. The mop quote made me laugh. Thanks for the serotonin.
