Simply (and wonderfully) said

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”

I was looking for an apt quote as a tagline for my own blog when I discovered this gem by Robert Brault. A Robert Brault Reader is a wonderful blog of original sayings that will make you pause, smile and think. Here are a few of Brault’s sayings:

"Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, for I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true."

"My age? Let me put it this way. In the dance of life, I am applauding the band."

"Observing your child at make-believe, you realize that the most underrated of family values is its entertainment value."

"Failure would be a bad thing if it didn't reopen so many opportunities."

"Stay out of the court of self-judgment, for there is no presumption of innocence."

"Do not judge yourself until you're done. And if you judge yourself a failure, you're not done."

"A parent's love is whole no matter how many times divided."

"We've heard that ignorance of math in the U.S. is growing geometrically, whatever that means."

"Although we try to shield our kids from the ugly side of life, inevitably we must watch as they turn over every rock -- including the one we made certain we're sitting on."


  1. Barbara,
    Thanks so much for this generous endorsement. I'm especially pleased that you included a few thoughts that had gone pretty much unnoticed on my blog.

    I've been surfing your archives with great pleasure. We share a common taste in the arts, it seems, and a common appreciation of reasonableness in human relationships.

    Looking forward to completing my browse through your archives. I'm signing on as a follower to publicly acknowledge my appreciation.

  2. I found you via Robert Brault. He said you are an excellent writer. Once again, as usual, he's understated and correct. I'll be back.

  3. Thanks for the info
