Quote du jour/Nathaniel Hawthorne

There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October.
Nathaniel Hawthorne


  1. Oh I love Nathanial Hawthorne, except for the Birthmark story. I used to visit the Old Manse in Concord, MA and imagine him writing at his desk. I love the book, The Peabody Sisters that tells of his wifes family. Thanks for the good quote

  2. I've been thinking about reading that book ever since I read American Bloomsbury. I've never been to Concord and I really must. I'd love to see all those houses. Where did you grow up, Patty?

  3. Once again, we have used the same quote on our blogs. I welcomed October with this quote and must say I love the photo you have used which really fits it to a tee! It was so good to see you visit my blog once again.

  4. Heidi, I must have missed that blog entry. :<( Maybe you and I should do one of those blogs together, like the 3191, only ours would be quotes. Each morning we would post one, without contacting the other, and see what happens. :<)

  5. So true. So very true! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

  6. Oh Nan! The light! You've captured it so well. You have a gift of photography. Thank you for sharing.
