the perfect quote



I'm finally upstairs at my desk, trying to get started. But of course, I checked facebook first like the addict I am. I read the perfect quote on my friend Allison's wall which I copied to an index card. I hope she won't mind me sharing it with y'all:

"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, speak a few reasonable words."

-Goethe.

Hey, I think I recognize that notecard. ;)

That quote is much more digestable than Faust.

Really enjoyed your last several posts. You inspire me to get going again.

Alissa, you ought to ~ thank you again. :)

Lindsay, I shamefully admit I've never read Faust. So I'm not missing anything?

Margie, the inspiration is mutual. You are in my prayers....

Faust wasn't bad -- just long. It's a lot like Job. I would stick with Job.
