Sunday Quote

"Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words." --- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

So here's a little song:

Pink Martini- Hang On Little Tomato

A poem:

Splendour in the Grass

What though the radiance
which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass,
of glory in the flower,
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be;
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of human suffering;
In the faith that looks through death,
In years that bring the philosophic mind.

-- William Wordsworth

And an exquisite picture.

Marilyn Monroe 1950 Griffith Park
