It's about 33 years old now, and the blue is faded and dirtied by the dust of all those years, but it is among my most precious possessions, made by my younger daughter. For more Project Blue Posts, see Anna!
One of the indictments of civilizations is that happiness and intelligence are so rarely found in the same person.
William Feather, author, editor and publisher (1889-1981)
The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.
Charles Langbridge Morgan
It is not of so much consequence what you say, as how you say it. Memorable sentences are memorable on account of some single irradiating word.
Alexander Smith, poet (1830-1867)
There are strange ways of serving God;
You sweep a room or turn a sod,
And suddenly, to your surprise,
You hear the whirr of seraphim,
And find you're under God's own eyes
And building palaces for him.
Herman Hagedorn, poet, teacher (1882-1964)
I would not enter on my list of friends
(Though graced with polished manners and fine sense
Yet wanting sensibility) the man
Who needlessly sets foot upon a worm.
William Cowper, poet (1731-1800)
