Bookish Art for January

Harry Brooker - The Treasure Volume, 1879

Look well to this day,
For it is life.
In its brief course lies all the realities of existence.
For yesterday is but a memory
and tomorrow only a vision.
--Sanskrit Poem

  1. Beautiful quote. I need to remember that this day is life. Thanks for posting! (And the paintings are always great, too. Who knew so many artist painted people reading??)

  2. I adore this quotation, and would like to keep it more present. One day at a time...

  3. I like paintings like this one with reading as a subject. Recently I have thought that a lovely painting of a lady reading a Kindle will not have the same appeal.
