Mid Week Quote: Cicero

Happy Wednesday.

As I am doing so much studying into the Ancient Romans at the moment I have chosen a quote by Cicero (106-43 BCE). Cicero was a Roman statesman, lawyer and scholar who wrote extensively about philosophy, rhetoric and politics.

A home without books is a body without a soul.


Happy Reading.

Mid Week Quote: James Herriot


I hope everyone is doing well. We are in Lockdown number 3 so I thought today’s quote would be one attached to a cute picture of our cat Lyra. Lyra has taken to squeezing between my husband and myself on the sofa and finds this her absolute favourite spot at the moment so I have gone for a related quote.

Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.

James Herriot

Happy reading and stay safe.

Mid Week Quote: Tom Baker


I can’t believe it is Christmas on Friday. I am sticking with my Christmas theme for my mid week quotes and this week’s is by Tom Baker. I love this quote because so many of the ornaments on our Christmas tree have special memories attached.

Some Christmas tree ornaments do more than glitter and glow, they represent a gift of love given a long time ago.

Mid Week Quote: Anton Chekov

Happy Wednesday!

I’m not sure how a happy a Wednesday it is with the prospect of another lockdown starting tomorrow but hopefully we can all stay safe and hopefully it will lead to better things.

My chosen quote today is by someone I studied a long time ago in A Level Drama, Anton Chekov. Anton Chekov (1860-1904) was a Russian playwright and short story writer. He was a medical doctor for most of his literary career.

“Everything on earth is beautiful, everything – except what we ourselves think and do when we forget the higher purposes of life and our own human dignity.”

Anton Chekov
