Balance and Progression

'Unless a capacity for thinking be accompanied by a capacity for action, the superior mind exists in torture."

--Benedetto Croce (1866-1952, Italian philosopher)

"Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist: give me leave to do my utmost."

--Isak Dinesin, (1885-1962, Danish author, Babette's Feast)

Short good sentences, not my own devising. But I carry them around. They speak better than I do.

Always said (just as Dad did) that big things come in small packages...
And you've provided quotational truth to back it up.

(and they're on my list now)

Short sentences. I don't know what that is. I need to embrace them. I am too long winded. Love these quotes.

Dear Bob,
You and I are both quote collectors. I am glad to have found some you like!. I've taken to a bunch of yours.

Thank you,
Ann T.

Dear Momma Fargo,
That short sentence thing is hard for me. Why use one word when you can use three?

It's a style thang,
Ann T.
