Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

Samuel Johnson

A man who has not been in Italy, is always conscious of an inferiority, from his not having seen what it is expected a man should see.


Mark Twain

The Creator made Italy from designs from Michaelangelo.


Fanny Burney

Traveling is the ruin of all happiness! There’s no looking at a building after Italy.


Giuseppe Verdi

You may have the universe if I may have Italy.


Anna Akhmatova

Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life.


Sensing a theme here?? *sigh* For reasons I am completely unable to explain, I just KNOW that I am meant to live in Italy. Not for a visit, or a vacation, but to LIVE in Italy!! I know this like I know my own name. To breathe the air, soak in the culture, live among the Italians...could life possibly be more blissful? I don't think so either. My heart's desire is set on Vicenza......and this is why...

All roads lead to Rome.....but will mine????
Stay tuned!

Great quotes. I do something like that occasionally on my blog, but I think you do it better. You're royalty & you've got a pink background! :-)

Pics are nice. EVERYONE I know who has been to Italy has LOVED it. Me I'm STILL waiting to leave the county. Hope you make it there someday.
