Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

...with inspiring Venetian glass...
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.
Edgar Allan Poe
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
Theodor Geisel
I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
Michelangelo
Trust that little voice in your head that says, "Wouldn't it be interesting if..."; And then do it.
Duane Michals
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
George S. Patton
The man who has no imagination has no wings.
Muhammad Ali
There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea.
Francis Bacon
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
Theodor Geisel

I hope you have a wonderful day filled with imagination and wonder!

I always enjoy Wednesday quotes.

Lately I've realized that I don't seem to have any set goals (dreams) and it bothers me. I think I should come up with a few.

Beautiful glass works and wonderful quotes. The first pair of earrings are so beautiful.

I've been to the Corning Glass Works in Corning, New York, several times over my lifetime (long before they built a modern day museum and you toured the actual plant) and I've watched as glass blowers worked at their stations. It's an amazing art. Mesmerizing, in fact.

Nice post. :)
