in my home: quote board

Words fascinate me. They carry so much significance in just a combination of letters and spaces. Well chosen words can change inspire, challenge and teach. In homage to the written word, the chalkboard I hung in our kitchen has become our quote board. Our tradition is my husband and I take turns picking a favorite quote and writing it on the board and we leave it up until we can say it from memory. The current one is my contribution. Prior ones were:

"Who, being loved, is poor?" -Oscar Wilde (from me)

"God never made an ugly landscape. All that the sun shines on is beautiful, so long as it is wild." -John Muir (from my hubby)

It's my husband's turn next, any suggestions?
