FOUNTAIN OF KNOWLEDGE


Those are some of the photos I took in nice this summer, I love the statues a lot , and the fountains where really peaceful and relaxing to watch..I miss those beautiful architecture and sculptures here in Canada, I am really looking to going back next summer hopefully. I also loved those carrousel's that you can find everywhere in France, they have that great old school vibe ^^

Here are some lovely quotes I found about fountains :
"Some people drink from the fountain of knoweledge, other just gargle" Dr. Robert Anthony

the world is full of abundance and opportunity, but far too many people come to the fountain of life with sieve instead of a tank car…a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel.They expect little and as a result they get little.

That Fountain is so architectural and beautiful. When I look at it, I think of Poseidon and Mermaids and Wishes. It Makes me want to grab a guitar and serenade on the side or throw a coin over my shoulder and make a wish.

Love,
Elisabeth Adele
