thursday thoughts pt. 23


This is one of my favourite quotes. (It's Shakespeare.) I first heard it when my mum sent it as a text commemorating my dad's 80th birthday a couple of years ago, and since then I've liked to remember this quote whenever a loved one dies or it's an anniversary of someone's deathday. I find it comforting in a way. The picture accompanying the quote is inspired by another one though; "From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them, and that is eternity." by Edward Munch. I like that one too.

I love that quote...always have. It is oddly comforting...like making something sad very beautiful. Reminds me of my sweet grandmother who past away 3 years ago on the month :)
