Hi Claudia. You will know by now how much I love Emerson's quotes. He must have been such a wise man. Hope your Monday has gone well.

@Diane- I know you like him a lot, and one of the reason I chose a serie with his quotes was your lvely feedback!

Dearest Claudia,
I liked the third one, my friend! Emerson must be a great person; haha need to check.
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

I love that 3rd quote

@Orchid - he is very special, has a way with words
@Adam - my favourite too!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
