oh quotes

feeling kind of funny. seems like autumn's back, maybe someone should tell him he's a tad early. and i have a bit of a headache, but not badly. so i was thinking. maybe i should post some quotes every now and again. random quotes i happen to like. on the off-chance you do, too. and if not, what harm does it do? so here goes:

we arrived here safely, and, except for the ham sandwiches, we were satisfied with the journey.
julian barnes' parents on a postcard

i think it's re-assuring to know that sometimes the success of a journey is not jeopardised by poor-quality ham sandwiches. on that note.

oh, also just read this blog post by author and illustrator maira kalman. inspiring, go and read!

(i gave this little chinese lion to a friend and had to take his picture after he had settled in.)

Sorry for the funniness. Hope the weekend will settle it away. Love these quotes. I just posted our favorite a couple of days ago by Mark Twain. Great link... amazing illustrations! LOVE the color of that lion! It seems like a piece that will bring some kind of luck!

Happy Weekend!
