Other "stuff" is keeping me away from the easel for awhile. I'll be back soon with another post. Meanwhile, here's a few of my favorite quotes:


"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see."

~John Burroughs


Whatever appears to leave us
Actually doesn't leave.
Whatever appears to stay with us
Actually does not stay.
Nothing remains
Everything is a mystery
of constant gain and loss.

~Bengali Song


"I am afraid, if my devils leave me, my angels will take flight as well."

~Rainer Maria Rilke


"You want to know my philosophy? One day a peacock. The next day a feather duster."

~ Pat Quinn (the governor of Illinois, on his turn in the spotlight)

All excellent selections and I must borrow some too so I can pretend to be as knowledgeable as you!!! :)

I'm astounded that Burroughs had same issues as we do now, isn't that amazing? Thanks Don!!!!
