Contemplative Monday





"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident."  - Arthur Schopenhauer

  2. OMG Just chortling to myself. I read the person's name you quoted. I seriously saw Arnold Schwarzenegger and thought when did he get so philosophical? HEE HEE, I crack myself up.

  3. Pretty leaves, they make it through the weekend?

    Think there may be another stage for those that cannot accept the truth when it's in front of them.

    (I think maybe Mal needs her eyes tested again? I read like that, but I have cataracts - wonder if this will change after surgery???)

  4. Beautiful leaves. I am so loving your pictures from Nova Scotia and am looking forward to winter lovelies. lol > this made me laugh... the Arnold comment. Now, I just visited Sophie a while ago and she looks a little sad. I'm thinking she needs to go somewhere wet.

  5. So when is your coffee table photo book coming out? NB: This is a compliment and a hope only from me. I don't want to start a rumor here, but I think everyone would think it would be a good idea.

  6. Inger, thanks for the compliment my dear! It is a good idea and we have, really, considered it. I would like to make something available to share what I love to do....taking pictures.
    I had a plan a few years back to photograph all of the older churches in Nova Scotia that are scattered throughout the province. I thought that would be a good coffee-table book.
    I like your idea....leave it with me. Now the pressure in on! lol

  8. And so goes our US Constitution..."We hold these truths to be self-evident."

    Judging from your photographs, I am thinking Nova Scotia must be absolutely beautiful!

  9. Ha! The Hub just reminded me that those words are written in our Declaration of Independence, not the US Constitution! Well, he IS the history teacher so he should know, LOL! I knew it was there all along, I was just checking to see if anyone would notice...:)
