I was on a hunt to find good quotes the other day.
Because I love words. And I want to embroider some good words to hang on my walls, and maybe give as gifts too if I can bear to part with them. So I thought I'd share some.
Because I like to share.
Here they are:

to look at a mountain
for what it is
and not as a comment
on my life. -David Ignatow
Criticism is only words about words, and of what use are words about such words as these?
Do you have any good quotes that you just love? What are your favorites? Want to share them? We all have a place in our hearts that loves good words.
Oh! And Happy New Year!
