A little book, full of quotes from famous American Women. I call upon it from time to time to remind me that gumption, honesty and elegance are the most important accessories one can carry….
More importantly, if all else fails: “Raise Chickens”
Here I will share my favorites.
“You grow up the day you have your first real laugh-at yourself.” GEORGIA O’KEEFE (G with her horns)
“I think if the people of this country can be reached with the truth, their judgment will be in favor of the many, as against the privileged few.” ELEANOR ROOSEVELT
“Adventure is worthwhile in itself.” AMELIA EARHART
“Beauty has nothing to do with possession. If possession and beauty must go together, then we are lost souls, a beautiful flower is not there to be possessed, it’s three to be beheld. You’re not going to take a beautiful painting off a museum wall. It’s there for your pleasure.” DIANA VREELAND (Loving the position of her hand pictured)
“If I didn’t start painting; I would have raised chickens.” GRANDMA MOSES
“The best way to hold a man is in your arms.” MAE WEST (derriere pictured-need I say more?)
