I have friends who can quote something fabulous at the drop of a hat; they even know who said it, and what they say is always appropriate to the occasion. I admire them for this, and I try to remember them, really I do, but two seconds later I couldn’t tell you what it was that was so memorable.  I have quotes scattered around my office, but if I wasn’t able to see them, I often wonder if they would still inspire me? Quotes, are tidy little morsels of words that magically make us stop and wonder, secretly wishing we had thought of them first. Here are a few of my favorites to start off your week …. “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” — Henry David Thoreau “Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous.” — Bill Moyers “Decorate your home. It gives the illusion that your life is more interesting than it really is.” – Charles M. Schulz  “Design is an opportunity to continue telling the story, not just to sum everything up.” —  Tate Linden

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” — Pablo Picasso “One should never be the oldest thing in one’s house.” – Patsy Stone 

“Have no fear of perfection — you’ll never reach it.” — Salvador Dali

“Good design is a conversation.” – Zahid Sardan

“.. our objects, bibelots, whatnots, and knickknacks-say the most about who we are. They are as honest as a diary.” – Charlotte Moss

 “Be thoughtful, not weird…”  – Jonathan Adler

“Home is the nicest word there is.”  – Laura Ingalls Wilder
