Wise Words Wednesday
Everyday (except Monday, THAT'S OUR DAY OFF) Crimson and I have a topic/theme picked out. We will follow that topic/theme for our post for that day. Today's topic/theme is Wise Words Wednesday. Every Wednesday we will post a favorite quote or paragraph from a book that we read.
Today's Wise Words:
“Everyone must leave something in the room or left behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there. It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.”
~Ray Bradbury ~Fahrenheit 451
Crimson Says: Be a factor because it's not enough to just live in this world, you have to try and make it a better place.
Piper Says: Don't bury your soul with you; instead leave it behind in a legacy that reminds people of the mark you made on the world.
