Monday's Quotes

"Well, I suppose men can make all the laws they like," he said,
"but God made hope.  The stars willna burn out."
James Frazer from Diana Gabaldon's book,
Written in My Own Heart's Blood.

Hope is the thing dreams are built on to delight our soul.

Do you remember plucking the daisy petals as a child
and saying, "He loves me, He loves me not"?
Hoping for "He loves me",
for that truly made it so.

Lovely to be reminded.

Your wonderful hope quotes make me think, too, of the Emily Dickinson lines:

“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

I'm so gad it doesn't stop. Lovely post, Marilyn!

I still have a few white daisies blooming - they are a favorite in the garden.

The wild ones we always plucked and said the same words as kids in England!!

Yes, I did that! My mother taught me the little saying and I loved to pluck the flower petals!
