Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn in no other way.
Mark Twain

Experience enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
Franklin P. Jones

It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues.
Abraham Lincoln

Sylvia, it is so nice to see your post and the comment on my post after my holiday. Thank you. The post about the monk is hilarious!

Wonderful post, Sylvia - I love the photos. I certainly have my share of vices, but I'm not so sure about the virtues. And I don't plan to carry a cat by the tail any time soon!

Arti said...

I love the Jones quote. I can't tell you how many mistakes I"ve made at least twice.

I hope everything is going well Sylvia.

Gorgeous photos! And I love the quotes. Had to chuckle at that one about recognizing mistakes. So very true - for me, at least!

Have a great Thursday!

Beautiful photographs. You know I just realized that I am carrying a cat by the tail most of the time- or at least it feels that way!LOL.

I love that big monster. All gorgeous sky shots and great quotes. I love the one about the fool and his money getting elected. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter Weekend.

Rekha said...

Beautiful shots...loved the middle one. Almost as if the clouds are whispering to the trees... loved the quotes.....have a great weekend and enjoy yourself with more picture taking. :)

"Experience enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again." That one is a side-splitter, Sylvia. Too true. Or, at least that is what my friends who make mistakes tell me . . .

You know I never tire of looking at your skies! :-)

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
