In My Mind’s Eye

 In Art, Culture, Faith, Family, Fred's Blog, People, Photography, Travel

Twice each year the Thursday blog is a sampling of photos and quotes. It’s that time again and I hope you enjoy both.

"If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God.” ― G.K. Chesterton
"Often when you think you're at the end of something, you're at the beginning of something else.” – Fred Rogers
"The morals of our people are much better; their manners are more polite and agreeable, they are purer English; our language is better; our taste is better; our persons are handsomer; our spirit is greater, our laws are wiser; our religion is superior." - John Adams
"A poet could write volumes about diners, because they're so beautiful. They're brightly lit, with chrome and booths and Naugahyde and great waitresses. Now, it might not be so great in the health department, but I think diner food is really worth experiencing periodically." - David Lynch
"Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.” – Seneca
"I discovered that when one follows the artist's eye one sees unexpected treasures in so many seemingly ordinary scenes." - Julia Child
"We had an apartment on west side of Central Park. The rent was very reasonable. We found out later that it belonged to a gangster called Legs Diamond and it was a front to his headquarters. It was fine." - Jimmy Stewart
"Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted, and by degrees the forms and colours of things are restored to them, and we watch the dawn remaking the world in its antique pattern.” ― Oscar Wilde
"Every small town has at least one house the children whisper about; the type of house that has always been abandoned; where children hold their breath and close their eyes as they pass by." - The Blood Brothers
"To make one, there must be two.” ― W.H. Auden
"A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and need like a bandit." - Proverbs 24
“I loved autumn, the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there just for the beauty of it.” ― Lee Maynard

    I believe that the quote by Anthony Bourdain is offensive and inappropriate for this forum. I have been following a vegetarian diet for more than 41 years for personal reasons that shall remain personal. To endorse a quote that equates persons that follow a vegan diet to Hezbollah is truly a step too far.

      I do apologize Liz. Let me see if I can find a better quote for that photo.
