Some Looking Up

A   L   O   H   A !
 " Don't dwell on

 who let you down,

 cherish those 

who hold you up." 

" I don't have to 

look up my family tree,

because I know 

that I'm the sap. " 
                          Fred Allen 

" Great talents are the most lovely
and often the most dangerous
fruits on the tree of humanity.
They hang upon the most
 slender twigs
that are easily snapped off. "

 Carl Jung

"“To live 
is the rarest thing 
in the world. 
Most people exist, 
that is all” 
 Oscar Wilde


Thanks for Living some of it Here!
                           Warmly, cloudia

 Life is short; live it up. "
                                  Nikita Khrushchev

oh sadly too true on the most creatives being on a fragile branch so easily snapped off...i wonder what makes creatives dance so close to insanity...

You miss so much if you don't look up! I love M. Wilde he is like today's Stephen Fry!

Charles Gramlich said...

Oscar Wilde was quite a quote worthy fellow.

The older I get, the more I know that now is the time to live it up.

Cloudia said...

The palm is a date palm I believe. Blossoming tree? Don't know, sorry.

Thanks Friends ♥

I can't believe that "We will bury you" Kruschev also said that we need to live it up! I loved the quotes today. The pics were great, too.

I have been on a little break and what a gem of quotes and photos to come back to from you...they are wonderful. What is that building in your top shot? I haven't seen it before.

That second image is stunning. I choose life over an existence any day. Harder work, sometimes sad, sometimes frightening but worth it. Sooo worth it.
