Mid Week Quote

Good Morning!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far and getting lots of reading done. My chosen quote this week is by the great Oscar Wilde. He is a favourite of mine so I thought it was high time I chose one of his wonderful quotes.

 

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

 

Oscar Wilde

Happy reading everyone.

Mid Week Quote

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I hope eveyone is having a good week and managing to fit in lots of reading.

I love this quote and I plan on trying to live by this as much as I can in the future.

 

“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

Mid Week Quote

“History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce.”

Karl Marx

 

This quote is something I agree with as everyday you see in the news instances of people not learning from history and making the same old mistakes.

Anyway that is my thought of the day, I hope you are all having a good day.

Mid Week Quote

Firstly apologoies for missing the Mid Week Quote last week, with Christmas and New Year I forgot what the days of the week were.

I hope everybody is having a good week so far.

 

“Whatever you are, try to be a good one.”

Friday Poetry

As we near Christmas I have gone for a poem by Thomas Hardy. I love the work of Thomas Hardy, I have read many of his books and a few of his poems in the past. I think in 2019 I will try and read a bit more of his poetry as I rather enjoy it. Maybe my challenge is working and I am starting to enjoy reading poetry.

The Oxen

Christmas Eve, and twelve of the clock.

“Now they are all on their knees,”

An elder said as we sat in a flock

By the embers in the hearthside ease.

 

We Pictured the meek mild creatures where

They dwelt in their starwy pen,

Nor did it occur to one of us there

To doubt they were kneeling then.

 

So fair a fancy few would weave

In these years! Yet, I feel,

If someone said on Christmas Eve,

“Come, see the oxen kneel,”

 

“In the lonely barton by yonder coomb

Our childhood used to know,”

I should go with him in the gloom,

Hoping it might be so.

 

 

Thomas Hardy

 

P.S I know the picture is of sheep but sadly I did not have any pictures of Oxen but sheep were there at the stable so I thought I could get away with it.
