Quote du jour/Marie de Rabutin-Chantal

Those who are happy enough to have a taste for reading, need never be at a loss for amusement.
Marie de Rabutin-Chantal (1626-1696), marquise de Sévigné


  1. Oh yes... so true. So very true.

  2. And yet so many don't have this, and are bored. :<)

  3. I love the quote. This year my journal was full of old paintings of women reading and quotes.

    The banner is eye popping.

    Just lovely.


    P.S. I took part in the Persephone Challenge for this week that you referred to from your blog

  4. I sure wish I'd known of that quote when my teen step-daughter would say she was bored. Once she got to high school though, she was never lacking for things to do or read. I may just share this quote with her anyway.

    Thanks again for stopping by my little blog, Nan. I wrote an additional comment there to say that Brandy was very old and passed away the following Spring.

    Have a wonderful day.

  5. Christy, I got the quote from my desk engagement calendar - The Reading Woman, Museum of Fine Arts Boston. A painting by Mary Cassatt accompanies the quote on this last week in August. Thanks about the banner - I love all those bright, bright colors together. I am on the early pages of Cheerful Weather for the Wedding - it is a short book and I thought I'd go right through it but her descriptions are so, so good that I'm reading it very slowly.

    Conny, I don't think I've had a bored moment in my life, unless I was somewhere without a book. :<) (I just wrote back about Brandy)


I am really going to try and respond to your comments as soon as they come in! I'm so grateful for your notes.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
