by Henry David Thoreau

“Man's life is like a drop of dew on a leaf.”

by Albert Schweitzer

“The fall of a leaf is a whisper to the living”
Russian Proverb

“With time and patience the mulberry leaf becomes a silk gown.”

Oh, to be able to sprout forth wisdoms such as these! Lovely selection of quotes to begin a new week. Thank you, Claudia. I hope you have a most rewarding day at the office.

I just love your positive outlook. It's so refreshing.

@Desiree - you are so lovely my dear! Long day behind, glad it's over.
@Barb - thank you!
@Karen - :)

I remember the first time I showed my oldest grandchild a leaf I picked off a tree. He was fascinated by it. There is so much beauty in nature.

@Belle - you are so right, I still love to collect leaves and make autumn arrangements at home.

Love all these quotes about leaves today. So appropriate for this time of the year. As my post tomorrow is about leaves, I was actually looking at quotes about leaves this morning! Great minds think alike. I didn't use any, so I'm not repeating any of yours!

@Diane - if you wish to use any please feel free. I am glad you enjoyed them!

those quotes make me want to snuggle up to my fireplace...
Hugs and hope you feel better soon~

Great choice in your selection of quotes and proverbs, Claudia.

Cheers, Jenny


PS Thanks for your comment re Icing on the Sibling Cake I am trying a new way or replying Claudia and wish to do a direct reply to you - but you do not have a contact email. Long ago, you indicated you had emailed it to me, but alas, I cannot find it.
If you wish to try again, my email address is pearsonreport@gmail.com - if not, I will then reply in my comment area, per usual.

These are lovely quotes, especially for a grey and cold Monday. Autumn is such a beautiful season... Have a good week, Love from London xo

@Sush - would love to have a fire now, but happy with my tea. Strangely enough the whole body is under tension, the muscles and the bones. But hey, I'll be better soon :)
@Jenny - thanks dear, I will write an email :)
@Mlle Poirot - it is a lovely season indeed, my fav :)

"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."
