she read, she saw...

This is my weekly Friday feature. I send my daughter, who is finishing up her third year of law school in Seattle, WA, a photograph I took and she picks a quote to go with it.  So the image is something I photographed that touched me and the words are something she read that touched her. Hopefully, both pieces will be a bit more inspiring as a result...



"In taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy. But in passing it over, he is superior." -Francis Bacon

Photo info: I took this one in Prague a few years ago.  I thought it was kind of an interesting mix up for Valentine's week.

Don't forget to enter the Theo Chocolate Giveaway!

I remember being taken by that statue. You don't see statues like that every day... Pretty graphic.

Have a great weekend all.

Visiting from Reya!

I like the idea of exchanging photos and assigning quotes; that's so cool. I hadn't heard this quote before, but it looks like it's just a teeeeeny bit too late for the victim in this photo!
