Wednesday Wisdom

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes quotes (American Physician, Poet, Writer, Humorist and Professor at Harvard, 1809-1894)

Sharing light with Kimmy.

Striving to create a path between the present course of events and a new course; leading to new outcomes.


  1. the picture reflects our life perfectly. It pleased my eye, yet frightened me at the same time too. He and she are moving in the same direction, yet each for oneself.
    What does the railing gap symbolize? I recognize the portrait of today in that separation, yet why there are no signs of any attempts to delete the distance?
    Good picture and fearful message.

  2. Tomas, thanks for dropping in. I have been visiting you as well!!

    When I saw this quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, “The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving,” I was also in awe.

    I saw it as relationships in general. I know I would never find happiness if I was trying to walk in front, behind, or in someone else's footsteps. Relationships, to me are two people, moving in the same direction, as individuals not ONE entity.

    The picture can be haunting. There might be a time in your life, that you grow apart from people. That is normal, because people sometimes slow down, speed up, or change direction entirely.

    I view the picture as the relationship with my husband. Solid as steel. In the same direction, strong souls, and right there for each other in case one falls off. Slips, anything.

  3. thanks for sharing such inspirational words. i love quotes and applies it to daily life.
