'Twas a Night of Wonder

If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every artist was first an amateur.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Make yourself necessary to somebody.

What a great post and beautiful photos! Love the drawings on the window. And the quote..."If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare..." Two nights ago we had a meteor shower here, unfortunately it was about 5 degrees outside. I asked my son and husband to come watch. At first they both said "no", but when I said, "So, you are going to miss this?", they grabbed their parkas and watched with me. "Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting." You bet it is!

I think God also said that being an artist would be an unpaid job for eternity.

Your images are so beautiful and perfectly paired with those quotes. What would the world be without art? Art is a gift devine and you have it.

Would you mind if I used two of these quotes on my blog? They are perfect for a photo I took of the night sky. Thanks!
