Thought, pen, ink and paper for April 04 to 06, 2018
On November 14, 1851, Moby Dick, the famous novel by Herman Melville, was published. In celebration of that here are 5 quotes from the book.
This week contains the anniversary of Willie Nelson’s assets being seized by the IRS. That is long settled, but any excuse to quote Willie works for me.
This week in India and elsewhere the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi is celebrated. Gandhi is known as Father of the Nation in India. He is very quotable. I just picked out a few that struck me as particularly interesting.
I searched for some humorous quotes this week.
For the week including the 4th of July, I went with quotes from the founding fathers of the United States of America. I wasn’t trying to be political, but some of the ideas expressed in these quotes seem in contrast to our modern political climate.
Five Johnny Cash lyrics written in black ink. I hope you see the theme for the Man in Black.
I am not talking about people who are good writers, but pens that write well. My pens I consider good writers remain filled with ink. I keep them ready for a card, letter or note. Each one of these pens deserves a quick mention.
For the week of the summer solstice, five original haiku. I had fun writing them.
