Recently our friend Tim Greene was back in town. He was ministering in Greece earlier this year and he so kindly brought us a gift from Greece.
Tim is a traveling Evangelist and he and his wife know that I like white accessories and that I appreciate anything related to Home Decor.
He was kind enough to bring this bust of the Greek Philosopher Omhpoe to me. I just love it!
I have him sitting on a stack of tiny antique books under a cloche.
He has a very handsome profile, don't you think?
If you look closely you can see the country of Greece on my old beat-up globe.
Men would live exceedingly quiet if these two words, mine and thine, were taken away. Anaxagoras
But, you don't have to be a Greek philosopher to be wise:
Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom. Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I think Plato knew what he was talking about:
All men are by nature equal, made all of the same earth by one Workman; and however we deceive ourselves, as dear unto God is the poor peasant as the mighty prince. Plato
Thank you for coming by, my friends, have a wonderful weekend. Our forecast is still calling for sun, sun and more sun! We have enjoyed a beautiful mosquito free summer this year. Yay!!!
All the gold which is under or upon the earth is not enough to give in exchange for virtue.
