A good book has no ending. R.D. Cumming

Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own. William Hazlitt

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. Chinese Proverb

I found this one just funny :
Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it. P.J. O'Rourke

there is no frigate like a book
to take us lands away,
nor any courser like a page
of prancing poetry.
this traverse may the poorest take
without oppress of toll;
how frugal is the chariot
which bears the human soul!
- emily dickinson

i don't know if you've read this before, but it sprung to mind when i read this post. aren't books lovely little things?

yours, rachel rose

I agree with the quotes, the last one is pretty darn funny.

thanks for the comment + compliment! i love doing quick little sketches like that - it's the more complex drawings that make me lose patience (i have at least three watercolors waiting for me to finish...whoops).
keep up the lovely work!
yours, rachel rose
there is no reason why
