Quotes for the Day

I've been cleaning my office again. It seems to be one of my challenge areas in my life. It is also something I do (clean) when I am feeling that I don't have control of my life. I pick something I can control.

I'm coming across all of these pieces of paper with quotes or proverbs on them. Thought I would share two of my favorites (so far) with you. The first one is a Kenyan Proverb:

"Be like the needle; so insignificant, but it sews the world together."

Next is a quote for the article Between Clothing and Nudity by Mario Perniola, an Italian philosopher.

"Everything is fabric, clothing to the very end. Everything turns to dust, 
but dust is still an extreme covering; it envelopes everything."

I love collecting quotes and they find their way into my art quite often. Tomorrow I'll share my ATC for the "dew" exchange with Arts in the Cards where I included a quote. Do you collect quotes? If so, please share your favorite.


  1. Oh gee, when I saw today's photo my mind perceived it as a box of chocolates. So my quote for the day would be: "Chocolate, breakfast of champions."

    1. LOL You are too funny. It's actually a collage I made for one of Virginia Spiegel's American Cancer Society fundraiser. It went to England. I miss it! Hugs, Karen

  2. “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
    - Theodore Roosevelt
