Journals without meaning.........once again.....

"Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrats are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd"
- Dame Edith Sitwell

'One is wise to cultivate the tree that bears fruit in your soul"-Henry David Thoreau

“If people and their manner of living were alike everywhere, there would not be much point in moving from one place to another.”
- Paul Bowles

“Do not lose hold of your dreams or aspirations. For if you do, you may still exist but you have ceased to live.”
- Henry David Thoreau


  1. These books are exquisite! And the Edith Sitwell quote is one of my favorites ever...I have bought three copies of her book, "The Last Years of A Rebel" recently to give to all my fabulous eccentric friends.

  2. Thank you - I definitely need to get the book.
