I'm always saying ABC Wednesday comes too  QUICKLY.

Many of the letters are  QUITE difficult to find a good word or picture

to explain it.


I'm just going to use a single word today.


" Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.

   Inside of a dog its too dark to read."

   Groucho Marx

" Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun

which you could never get from reading books on astronomy.

These pure and spontaneous pleasures are

"Patches of Godlight"

 in the woods of our experience."

C.S. Lewis


is the Thief of Joy.

Teddy Roosevelt

Like the quotes, Q is not easy to research particularly
when one has participated several times.

Hey, don't we think alike, this week, anyway. I picked "quote" too, and a picture of my dogs. Have a good week.

Love your quotes, - especially the first one. When the sun comes into the woods in the fall it is especially beautiful.

Anita said...

I love nature and animals, so of course, your photos are lovely.
The last quote gave me my biggest a-ha. All very good, though.
Creative usage of Q! :)

Reader Wil said...

Thanks for your comment! Yes I think Saint Paul was also on a quest. And Mozes of course, and so many others...

Groucho Marx remains my favourite. Smart choice for Q.
