“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting.”  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

To accompany these words from Emerson today is a small gallery of some of the smaller beautiful creatures I’ve photographed in the last few years.

God’s handwriting is so often overlooked because of its finer details.

A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 98: Saturday Life Quotes – Emerson


“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), American poet, essayist and lecturer provides a few Life Quotes for this Saturday:

“Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.”

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

“It is not the length of life, but the depth.”
