Weekly Quick Collage: Life


Life
collage, 7 x 7 inches


She said she usually cried at least once each day not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful and life was so short.
~ author unknown


To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson




Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can. 
~ Danny Kaye 


What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
~ Crowfoot

  4. All of us are descended from "the Tree of Life" and man has always venerated trees. Thoreau told us about his escape to the woods in order to truly understand life, "and not, when he came to die, discover that he had not lived."
