We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
"Little Gidding"
T S Eliot

Who said that?

For many years now I have collected quotations and sayings, and apart from using some for artwork inspiration, I use them on cards too.

Here are some of my favourites.

Love the background on this one.  I used a water droplets stamp - another fab design from Designs by Ryn .

The humming birds are die-cut from a scrap piece of card that I had used for experimental paint effects.

This next quote my mother had framed on her bedroom wall, and I never knew where it was from - I don't think she did either.

I now know is is from Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien.

I had some organza flower ribbon, so cut that up, used some die-cut leaf swirls and a gate stamp (which I think is by Paper Artsy).

These words are so true ..... and something I had to get over!

Love this Memory Box die - cut out of black card, with another cut out of white card and slightly offset.

It is not only quotes that inspire, sometimes I see something that takes my breath away. This sunrise was earlier this week - it only lasted a few minutes - but that is all the time I needed - though I nearly fell down the stairs racing for my camera!
