Quote of the Day – Edvard Munch on Perceptions

I love any quote about how we see things in this world. How we perceive things and how life grabs us in the moment. When you look at things do you always accept it at face value or do you dig deeper? At different moments you see with different eyes. You see differently in the…

Quote of the Day – Robert Fulghum on Greener Grass

This is really a great quote. It’s usually not greener grass wherever you look, but wherever you tend to your garden. Through rain, or shine, it’s all the same. If you water and cultivate it, it will grow. A good reminder for all of us. The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the…
