LA is full of interesting doors.  Yes, there really is a door here, right below the obi.

To what shall
I liken the world?
Moonlight, reflected
In dewdrops,
Shaken from a crane’s bill.

My friend Isadora at Inside the Mind of Isadora invited me to take part in the 3-day quote challenge.  Thanks very much, Issy!  The “rules” are as follows:

 

Thank the person you chose you.  (Done.)

Post a quote for three consecutive days.  (Won’t be consecutive.)

Say why you like your quotes.  (This quote rings so true to me and reminds me of the quote (more or less) that you should be careful about asking God to give you patience, as He’ll put you in situations where you have to develop it.  🙂  Trust me, that’s true!)

Invite three blogging friends to join in.  (This is supposed to be fun, so any of you reading this who would enjoy taking part, please feel free to do so.  Quotes are so easy to find with the internet.)

“I love tulips better than any other spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace, and next to a hyacinth look like a wholesome, freshly tubbed young girl beside a stout lady whose every movement weighs down the air with patchouli. Their faint, delicate scent is refinement itself; and is there anything in the world more charming than the sprightly way they hold up their little faces to the sun. I have heard them called bold and flaunting, but to me they seem modest grace itself, only always on the alert to enjoy life as much as they can and not be afraid of looking the sun or anything else above them in the face.”
― Elizabeth von Arnim, Elizabeth and Her German Garden

Yesterday I shared a quote by Thomas Jefferson.  Today I’m sharing a thought of my own.  It may not be as deep as the one from TJ, but I feel it’s quite relevant to many of us in ways that it would not have been to him.  What do you think?
