The Art of Reading...

Michael Ancher -- A Young Girl Reading, Maren Sofie Olsen, 1885
"To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself 
a refuge from almost all the miseries of life."
--W. Somerset Maugham


  1. Nice quote and nice painting. I like to just escape into a good book sometimes and forget whatever is going on in real life as well.

  2. Very true, and again you found a beautiful paiting to go with the quote (or do you work the other way around?)
    I always enjoy these posts and see what you found this time, thank you!

    Kind regards,

    1. I have a bunch of quotes and a bunch of artwork that I like and I try to match them up. I'm glad you enjoy them. They're one of my favorite posts to do.

  3. Love this quote! So true. Many times I have found escape and solace through a good book :)
