Stars (quotes and my painting)

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Harriet Tubman

Love knows not distance; it hath no continent; its eyes are for the stars.

Gilbert Parker

Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars.

Henry Van Dyke

For age is opportunity no less Than youth itself, though in another dress, And as the evening twilight fades away The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.

Theodore Roosevelt

My first brush painting

You like it, don’t you?

What is this animal?

He has wonderful dreams, he is walking to stars!

I hope to learn to paint too.

From a book “Irish Blessings”.

When this blog just started I published a post “I am not Irish”. You can read it HERE.

I mentioned in the post that years ago during an Irish Festival in Pocono Manor I bought a book “Irish Blessings” (1983, Random House) and I shared three blessings with my readers.

It is spring and very soon I am going to Pocono Manor again. Today I want to share with you two more Irish Blessings.

May brooks and trees 

And singing hills

Join in the chorus too,

And every gentle wind that blows

Send happiness to you.

*******************************************************************************************

Lucky stars above you,

Sunshine on your way,

Many friends to love you,

Joy in work and play.

Laughter to outweigh each care,

In your heart a song

And gladness waiting everywhere

All your whole life long!
