“When I get sick of what men do, I have only to walk a few steps in another direction to see what spiders do. Or what the weather does. This sustains me very well indeed.” ~ E. B. White
On this windy fall day here (with rain whirling and hurling outside) Virginia thought it might be calming, spiders notwithstanding, to share a few fall roses from Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Hopefully they will brighten The Gloom away…
“Hang on to your hat. Hang on to your hope. And wind the clock, for tomorrow is another day.” ~ E. B. White
“When my wife’s Aunt Caroline was in her nineties, she lived with us, and she once remarked: ‘Remembrance is sufficient of the beauty we have seen.’ I cherish the remembrance of the beauty I have seen.” ~ E. B. White
“Most people think of peace as a state of Nothing Bad Happening, or Nothing Much Happening. Yet if peace is to overtake us and make us the gift of serenity and well-being, it will have to be the state of Something Good Happening.” ~ E. B. White
“I am still encouraged to go on. I wouldn’t know where else to go.” ~ E. B. White
When it’s dark and gloomy outside, here’s to continuing on and opening our hearts to the possibility of Something Good Happening.
grace, peace & flowery fall colors
Virginia : )
E.B. White (1899-1985) was the American author of the famous children’s book, “Charlotte’s Web” among a pile of others.
So lovely … and delightful thoughts. Thank you, Virginia!
Thank you, Sister Renee. Flowers have a way of providing a respite from the rough and tumble of never ending Not-So-Good news. Blessings! 💐✨🌟🤗💐
Great quotes, Virginia! And lovely photos!
Thank you, Craig. ‘Twas so much fun doing “photo ops” of these roses at Lewis Ginter two weeks ago. They were not shy at all!! 🍁🌟🌹🌟🍁
Loved this Virginia! Happy Friday, much love and Garfield Hugs.
Thanks GH – a very HaPpY Friday to you, with much love (hugs inclusive) back at ‘cha! 💐✨🤗✨💐
Beautiful roses … liked the E.B. White quotes, too!
Had so much fun doing “photo ops” of amazing roses @ Lewis Ginter 2 weeks ago, & there’s more to come. I found a website with a huge stash of E.B. White quotes -his wise words still are relevant today. Big hugs, Cin!!!! 🌹🤗🌹📚🌹
Such beautiful roses — and yes, they do help lift the gloom! We had that dreariness most of last week, but today the sun is shining! Odd how just seeing that brightens one’s day.
Sunshine makes a difference, especially when rainy days darken everything. We had a few afternoon storms roll in that made it almost like nighttime outside! Yikes! Hope you are keeping well, Debbie!!! 💨☀️☔️☀️💨🤗💨
Is it too late to resurrect the spirit of E.B. White and inject it into every existing legislator? Great inspirational quotes, V! Now, it’s time to bake bread. It’s the closest I can get to “the state of Something Good Happening.”
Baking bread sounds like the “state of Something VERY Good Happening” – especially your bread, Tim!! I also found a pile of E.B. White quotes about writing. Methinks you would like them, too! Blessings! (& totally concur with your legislator sentiment!)🥖📚🥖💐🤗💐
Really beautiful those flowers ❤
Thank you Sheri. Such a treat seeing such beautiful blooms in October! Cheers! 💨🌹💨
I love White-lovely post.
Michele, I found a website with piles of E.B White quotes that resonated tremendously (also quite a few about writing) – what a gifted author!! Hope you are keeping well with lots of “Something Good Happenings.” Hugs & love!📚 💜🤗💜📚
you are so kind-sharing such goodness!! I can not wait to read the books St. Teresa- and visit this site. thank you.
