Quote o’ the Day

Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.Walker Evans

After I first heard this, I’d find myself having scary-intense moment staring at, say, grout in the shower. Good times.

    my favorite quote is;

    “Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.”

    A not so famous saying by me

    Two told to me by a wise old sea captain:

    “Confident people can afford to be generous”


    “If you treat men like men, they behave like men” (in today’s terms…If you treat people like people……etc)


    PS..and from my Grandmother. Good manners cost nothing.

    Of course, Adobe might, given the furore over CC, might, when thinking about their customers, consider this one:

    “If put to the pinch, an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness.”
