  1. The Francis Bacon quote is one of my favorites. Love the St. Ephraim one. I haven't heard that one before.

  2. Thank you, Holly. I hadn't, either. I don't even remember where I found it, otherwise I'd gladly tell you. But I'm happy to share all those wonderful quotes here, I know some of my friends and followers appreciate them as much as I do.

    Have a good day,
