"Quotation"

group profile | members | imagewall | quotation maps

We bloggers like a good quote, don't we?

This group is for your favourite quotations, and i'm not just talking about things you read in Bartlett's. It could be an inspirational excerpt from an ancient text; a memorable line from a movie; advice an old school teacher gave that stuck with you. It can even be something you overheard at the bus stop this morning.

Add a poignant photo to accompany your quote.

If you tag the posts, perhaps we can build up a searchable bank of our own favourite words, phrases, quotations...

You get the picture. Join the group and get quoting. You can quote me on that.

Salutation to the Dawn

(viewed 885 times)
Look to this day!
For its life, the very life of life,
In it's brief course
Lie all the verities and realities
of your existence:

The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendour of achievement

For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today well lived makes every
Yesterday a dream of happiness
And tomorrow a vision of hope,
Such is the salutation to the dawn.
Look well therefore
To this day!

- Rumi

"All of the true things that I am about to tell you are shameless lies."

first sentence of the /Book of Bokonon/; chapter 4

(My feet are the nasty red ones on the left. To think, there are
actually people who get off in a sexual way over feet.... I can
understand nearly every other kink but that one...)

Opusculum paedagogum

Study of Two Pears
BY WALLACE STEVENS

            I
Opusculum paedagogum.
The pears are not viols,
Nudes or bottles.
They resemble nothing else.

            II
They are yellow forms
Composed of curves
Bulging toward the base.
They are touched red.

            III
They are not flat surfaces
Having curved outlines.
They are round
Tapering toward the top.

            IV
In the way they are modelled
There are bits of blue.
A hard dry leaf hangs
From the stem.

            V
The yellow glistens.
It glistens with various yellows,
Citrons, oranges and greens
Flowering over the skin.

            VI
The shadows of the pears
Are blobs on the green cloth.
The pears are not seen
As the observer wills.
