Thoughtful Friday 1

Bella Dia started this lovely project a few weeks ago, and I couldn’t help but join in !

Words and a picture, to take with me (and you) during the week end.

Maybe dwell upon it for a while, getting inspired even, let the words sink in.

I love a good quote, I love words.

And when It comes with a visual, why should I resist ?!

I can’t wait to see this week’s contribution ! A Flickr Group has been set where you can see everyone’s quotes and pictures, have a look !

“Shall I go down this long hill in the rain to fish in the pond ? I ask myself.
And I say to myself : yes, roam far, grasp life and conquer it.

Learn much and live. Your fetters are knocked off, you are really free.

Stay till late in the night; be unwise and daring …

Do not repose every night as villagers do.
Men come home at night only from the next field or street … But come home from afar, from ventures and perils, from enterprises and discovery and crusading, with faith and experience and character…
Dismiss prudence, fear, conformity.

Remember only what is promised,
Make the daylight and the night hold a candle, though you be falling from
heaven to earth … ”

Henry D. Thoreau

( The journal of Henry D. Thoreau)
