A perpetual holiday is a good working definition of hell.
George Bernard Shaw

Sharing the holiday with other people, and feeling that you're giving of yourself, gets you past all the commercialism.
Caroline Kennedy

All journeys eventually end in the same place, home.
Chris Geiger

After all, the best part of a holiday is perhaps not so much to be resting yourself, as to see all the other fellows busy working.
Kenneth Grahame

We are so used to working that not working is the new hard work.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana, The Confessions of a Misfit



What an interesting collection of quotes about holidays. (Quite fitting for our American friends with their thanksgiving celebrations this week). I was going to disagree with the first one (!), but I guess it would be a bit boring if life was just one long holiday - oh! actually, that's me!!! :)

Dearest Claudia;
Oh, they all are quite amazing quotes for holidays; except (as our friend Diane said) the first one p;) I smiled a bit for the last one as my retied husband reminisce the days of his busy working days, haha.
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"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."
