dated 2008 ish

a suite of quotes and bon mots on mostly photographs i took, printed

don’t like that they don’t all work as a suite, so abandoning.

here are the quotes that were in the pix.

Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance. Oprah Winfrey

the most wasted of all days is one without laughter, e.e. cummings

Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit. e.e. cummings

But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply at all that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the WRight Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the clown. Carl Sagan

Whatever we lose, (like a you or a me) it’s always ourselves we find in the sea. e.e. cummings

to be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the heardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting. e.e. cummings

It is not every questio that deserves an answer. Publilius Syrus

If you cannot get rid of the family skeleon, you may as well make it dance. George Bernard Shaw

No pessimist ever discoverd the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit. Helen Keller

I merely took the energy it took to pout and wrote some blues. Duke Ellington

I was irrevocably betrothed to laughter, the sound of which has always seemed to me to be the most civilised music in the world. Peter Ustinov
