"...a life spent reading-that is a good life." -Annie Dillard
Love the quote and the painting!
Gorgeous picture - and what a perfect quote. I couldn't agree more.
Brilliant quote. Absolutely love it. And the painting is also wonderful.
What a beautiful painting! Love the quote too. :)
Yes! I agree, 100%.
The "pure, sensual, and unadulterated pleasure of reading." Exactly!
That is beautiful! I need that on my wall. Thanks for sharing, Lark!
Pretty and I agree with the quote!
Those are both great. Thanks!
Oh I quite like that.
Great quote! Screens like that in paintings always make me wonder... is it hiding housework that didn't get done? Is the wall not painted in that spot? What's going on behind that screen??? LOL
Now you've got me wondering what's behind that screen! Probably something undone...like dirty dishes, or unfolded laundry. ;D
I love that quote. and great art too!
Many readers get both of those things out of books! Nice painting.
That's a great quote and awesome art! Thanks for sharing!
I love this. The quote and painting seem to just go together.
I loved Azar Nafisi's first book. She is an astute reader. I had to look up the date of the painting b/c I wasn't sure the era but I think it's around 1876. Nice post.
So true. Regine
Lovely art. I quite agree with the quote. Sometimes reading is just reading, not an escape or trying to find the meaning of life.Have a lovely day.
Oh I love the painting. It's hard to look comfortable in that dress but she looks so content!
