Hello my fellow Book Dragons!
It is time for a quote. This quote I have chosen is one of my personal favourites. I hope you all enjoy it and it inspires you today.
“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”
Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996)
So for today’s quote I have chosen Lord Tennyson. This quote is all about striving and never giving up.
“To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
Sorry this is a day late, but now I’m back to work I’m running severely behind with my blog. I have 4 books to review and still my 2019 wrap up and 2020 aims to do! I will get there I promise. Better organisation is needed I know.
Today’s quote is by my favourite Winnie the Pooh character, Eeyore. I love Eeyore and collect everything Eeyore.
I love this quote as it always makes me giggle, poor Eeyore always did struggle with the exuberance of Tigger.
“Could you ask your friend to do his exercises somewhere else? I shall be having lunch directly, and don’t want it bounced on just before I begin. A trifling matter, and fussy of me, but we all have our little ways.”
I have gone for another festive quote this week! I must admit I am rather looking forward to my Christmas break. A nice festive rest is just what I need.
This week’s quote is by Brigham Young.
“Love the giver more than the gift.”
Brigham Young (1801-1877)
Yesterday I went on the Severn Valley Railway Steam in Lights train and it was brilliant. Who knew a steam train covered in lights could be so much fun?
So this week I have gone for a Christmas inspired quote.
“Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection.”
Here are a few pictures of yesterdays adventures.
I have been busy buying Christmas presents and I have nearly finished which is unusual for me this early. I love giving presents, wrapping them I am not so keen on. So this week’s quote I have chosen because it is about giving.
“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
I have included some Christmas pictures as well, because it is nearly Christmas!
The lights and the sunset are from a walk yesterday.
I am so sorry this is a day late. I have been desperately trying to get my first assignment handed in. Thankfully it is all handed in and now I get a bit of respite before starting the next one.
“Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul.”
Marcus Aurelius (170-180 CE)
