Cabinet of Curious Minor Wonders

" I have never been 
especially impressed
 by the heroics of people
 who are convinced they are 
about to change the world. 
I am more awed by those 
who struggle to make
 one small difference 
after another. "

Ellen Goodman

" Small change, small wonders -
 these are the currency 
of my endurance 
and ultimately of my life. "

" Take away love 
and our earth
 is a tomb. "

Robert Browning

" Remember 
the quiet wonders. 
The world has 
more need of them 
than it has 
for warriors. "

Charles de Lint

We are the warriors
of wonder,

Charles Gramlich said...

I hate so much when I see things like that cigarrette stubbed out in a rock. People should show some respect

Teresa said...

I LOVE the first and last quotes. That beautiful cat in the last picture is a treasure, too :)

Fascinating sky.

I don't think there are any small wonders. All of them enrich my days, and carry the possibility of change within them. Which is HUGE.

The quotes are wonderful. And I'm falling in love with your cat.

Laura said...

so much beauty and wisdom.... I am deeply touched by that first quote in particular... the small stuff is indeed what makes the world a sweeter place.

Very beautiful!!!


Bonjour Cloudia,
amie de la Nature.
Tu as tellement raison de la glorifier et de nous rappeler aussi que cette grand Nature, il faut la respecter et non la polluer.
Je t'embrasse amicalement.
