Random Supplement to Words I Love

On Tues., I filled out my top ten words which was so much fun to think about. Now, I've been seeing lots of words everywhere that I like. I also found more quotes to supplement the words I originally chose for my first list. So just for fun, here's a few of those findings:

A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay -
Love isn’t love
'Til you give it away.
~Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, "You Are Sixteen (Reprise)"

"Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love." ~Albert Einstein

"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen." ~Henry David Thoreau

"Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once never forgotten, never let it disappear." ~John Lennon


"Fashion, by which what is really fantastic becomes for a moment the universal.”
~Oscar Wilde

“One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures.”
