Wise Words from Willa Cather

May 30, 2008

Fridays are quote day here at Being Savvy.  Today's quote also serves as a coda as we wrap up our creative romp through May, highlighting art's role in life (and life's role in art).  Tomorrow we'll finish out the month with a look back, around and ahead. 

But first, some wise words from great author (hmmm...perhaps a summer re-read of My Antonia would be a good idea....):

"A child's attitude toward everything is an artist's attitude."

-- Willa Cather, The Song of the Lark

    What a beautiful quote! I think I just found the inspiration to begin the inscription for the book I'm giving my daughter's preschool teacher as she ends her preschool experience. It is called "Courage of the Blue Boy" by Robert Neubecker. It is sweet and very artistically inspired vision of a child's journey throught the colorful world. You should check it out!
