Friday Quote


"A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature."
--Henry David Thoreau
Inspiration for today's quote comes from this awesome bit of graffiti tagging.

What a wonderful quote. Henry David Thoreau is a very good writer. I blieve that a lake in a photo is much because you can see the reflection of the mountains or trees. You may even find some aniaml drinking water in the photo. This is a very inspirational quote. Thanks for sharing.

I thought about that, but those pictures are pretty generic and I just know people pictured their own lake. Anyway, I was hoping not having a photo would lead people to click on the link to the article. Thanks for the input and maybe I'll add one later...

I did click on the link and read the article to find another picture of a city in Canada.
