This has led to my decision to buy myself another bowl this one with the express purpose of holding fruit. Hanna Howard makes lovely hand painted mugs and bowls often with literary quotes on them for a reasonable price. I thought it might be nice to have her make a bowl for me.
Which brings me to the hard part, choosing a quote. So far I've thought of two good ones:
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage." — Rainer Maria Rilke
"When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes." -Desiderius Erasmus
Anyone have any good quotes, about writing or scholarship particularly, they would like to share?
