Well, I am in a rut and have found little in my life right now that I deem blog worthy. So, in an effort to appease my friends and readers, I will share a few noteworthy quotes from my current reads and from life.

" unalterable and unquestioned law of the musical world required that the German text of French operas sung by Swedish artists should be translated into Italian for the clearer understanding of English-speaking audiences." Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence (she is so brilliant!)

"It was one of the great livery- stableman's most masterly intuitions to have discovered that Americans want to get away from amusement even more quickly than they want to get to it." Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence

"In spite of illness, in spite even of the arch-enemy sorrow, one can remain alive long past the usual date of disintegration if one is unafraid of change, insatiable in intellectual curiosity, interested in big things, and happy in small ways." Edith Wharton, A Backward Glance (her autobiography)

"Mommy, what rhymes with fart? Oh, I know! Barf! Right mommy? Okay, now, what rhymes with poop?" Sam, during dinner tonight at Chili's (what stimulating conversation with a six year old...)

Have a blessed week!
