Mid Week Quote

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

My reading so far has not gone according to plan for the Easter Holidays but I am hoping to get back on track today. I have been distracted by adventures, walks in the countryside and music.

Anyway, quote time!

“There’s never enough time to do all the nothing you want.”

 

Bill Watterson

1988

 

Bill Watterson was the creator of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes which told the adventures of Calvin, a six-year-old boy and his tiger Hobbes who to Calvin is real but to everyone else is a stuffed toy.

 

I like this quote because we are always complaining that we do not have enough time to do everything that we need to do. But sometimes we should make enough time to just do nothing and relax, or do something frivolous. So that is my little bit of pondering for today.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far and looking forward to a book filled weekend.

I went for a long walk on monday and it inspired me to find a nature quote because everything I saw was greener and coming into bloom. It was wonderful to see after a gloomy winter.

“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.”

 

Gerard de Nerval

1843

 

Gerard de Nerval was the pen name of Gerard Labrunie, a French Romatic poet, novelist and essayist.

This weeks quote is inspired by all the music teaching I have been doing.

 

“Without music, life would be a mistake.”

 

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)

 

I studied Philosophy for one of my A Levels and I must admit that I did not agree with a lot of Nietzsche’s theories but this quote I completely agree with.

Friedrich Nietzsche was a german philosopher, cultural critic, composer, poet, and much more. His work had a profound influence on Western thinking.

Happy Wednesday!

This weeks quote stays with the theme of cats, because cats is a brilliant theme.

 

“When I play with my cat, who knows whether I do not make her more sport than she makes me?

 

Michel de Montaigne

 

Montaigne was a French philisopher in the 1500’s who through grief came up with philosophical essays on life, death and what it is to be human.

Lyra fully agrees with this weeks theme of cats!

Happy Wednesday

The following quote appealed to me because I really do not like newspapers. I find them extremely biased and you have to spend most of your time reading between the lines to get to the truth.

 

 

“The man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them.”

 

Thomas Jefferson

 

The above quote was part of Jefferson’s reply from the White House to the future editor of the Baltimore Whig’s.

Mid Week Quote

So this week my friend and I have been thinking of random acts of kindness, so I decided on an appropriate quote.

 

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”

 

Aesop

 

Aesop (c. 620-564 BC) was a Greek storyteller credited with a number of fables now known as Aesop’s Fables. His existence remains unclear and none of his work actually still exists. However many tales thought to be by him have been collected over the centuries, in many languages and passed down from generation to generation.
