Very clever! How long does it take you to match a picture to a quote???

RUTH said...

It varies; sometimes I know the quote just need to find out who said it; other times I may know a quote but it's not one that "grabs" me so I do a bit of a Google scout until I find one that I like; and of course there are loads of great quotes that I haven't got a photo for like “I never went to a John Wayne movie to find a philosophy to live by or to absorb a profound message. I went for the simple pleasure of spending a couple of hours seeing the bad guys lose.”.....no chance of me getting a photo of John Wayne!!.....and I only want to use photos I've taken myself not borrowed or scanned ones.

You make ordinary things extra special by the words you choose to go with the photos!

excellent Ruth....

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
