needed.

some days i search for a quote to pair with a photo. i love words with images, they add a whole new layer of meaning... today i found this. oh how i needed these words today.


“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. this is my symphony."

happy love thursday everyone.
