Monday's special

What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.
Mahatma Gandhi

This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.
Susan Polis Schutz

If you tell a joke in the forest, but nobody laughs, was it a joke?
Stephen Wright 

Some men go through a forest and see no firewood
English Proverb



Such lovely quotes! I especially like Gadhi's. It's so true but so sad at the same time.

I like them all, but especially the second because it propels me to go out and do something. :)

Powerful, moving quotes.

Beautiful quotes - though the joke one actually made me laugh! :-)

Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my birthday (and all the other ones). It felt weird to post a picture of myself, but it seemed to be in the right context for me...

Have a good week ahead xo

:) you made me smile, thank you

"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."
