Quote of the Week

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine.
 - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whenever we feel down or overwhelmed perhaps we should look inside ourselves to see if we are casting a shadow over our own happiness.


  1. Beautiful, poignant quote, as one would expect from the genius that is Emerson. This reminds me of Plato's analogy of the cave :)

  2. Wonderful quote, Linda. We do so often get in our own way.

  3. Another great quote Linda. I like quotes and enjoy how you always find ones that get me to think.

    Thank you for that!

  4. I should just visit your link when I start feeling down or demoralized. You always have something inspiring to say.

  5. Sam- I'm glad you like this.

    Talon- Thanks. I would be guilty of that myself.

    Barbara- Thanks and you're welcome. They always make me think, too.

    Anne- Drop by any time, the door is always open. ;)

  6. Linda,

    You do an excellent job with these quotes. I always love the picture and the quote, but what really makes it special is how you interpret the quote.

    Thanks for this reminder today:~)

  7. Ain't that the truth! :)

    Awesome photo too...
