The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface - So it is that we develop - But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work. For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece.

Quotes of Meaning

Some quotes I have come across and would like to share ....

"Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied." ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859

"The only place where housework comes before needlework is in the dictionary." 
~ Mary Kurtz

"Every experience deeply felt in life needs to be passed along - whether it be through words and music, chiseled in stone, painted with a brush, or sewn with a needle, it is a way of reaching for immortality."  ~ Thomas Jefferson


"One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is always having surprising discoveries."  ~ A.A. Milne
There is a masterpiece within for every quilter.

How timely that you should have the A.A. Milne quote up on your blog - my kitchen pantry where most of the baking needs and herbs are stored had become very disorganized...I straightened it out today and discovered all kinds of treasures!
Very nice listing of quotes you have given us...I have a few favorites and will have to think on this some more.

Too funny! I was going through some books last night and read that first quote! I liked it too and wrote it down.
