Sunday’s Quotes and Word of the Day


August 25, 2019

I’m going to do something a little different today. Still doing the quotes, but they’re not pictures (I’m running out!). So…it’s still quotes, but quotes I’ve collected/found and a word with it’s definition. We shall see how it goes!

WORD OF THE DAY:

“Shaconage” (sha-kon-o-hey) Cherokee, means “place of blue smoke”; refers to the Great Smokey Mountains

QUOTES: READING/BOOKS/LITERATURE

“The one way of tolerating existence it to lose oneself in literature as in a perpetual orgy.” – Gustave Flaubert

“I cannot live without books.” – Thomas Jefferson

“”Lay down a method also for your reading; let it be in a consistent and consecutive course, and not in that desultory and unmethodical manner, in which many people read scarps of different authors, upon different subjects.” – Earl of Chesterfield

“Friends can betray you but books are always loyal.” – Wang Gho Zhen

“Never judge a book by its movie.” – anonymous

“The contents of someone’s bookcase are part of his history, like an ancestral portrait.” – Anatole Broyard
