Best Love Qoute Ever--
and not once have we had an argument serious enough
to consider divorce; murder, yes, but divorce, never.” Jack Benny
Or how about this--
"An archeologist is the best husband any woman can have;
the older she gets, the more interested he is in her"- Agatha Christy
“When women are depressed, they eat or go shopping.
Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking.”
I am doing a series of 30 valentines for a gallery this February,
highlighting some of the most beautiful words ever written.
Obviously I can't use any of those.
"I sat down under his Shadow with Great Delight"
is a piece of poetry from the Songs of Solomon
that I just painted into a tiny love story, entitled 'Star of Solomon."
Although I am not sure who they principle Characters of this story are,
Their affection is as old as the cosmos.
This is my favorite thing I have ever painted.
(This piece will be sold in a Silent Auction through Deseret Book)
So, I'm collecting love thoughts, the older the better. I'll probably start with Abraham's immortal words, "My soul shall live because of thee" Beat that Shakespear!
If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them. Long or short, comic or passionate, (even if they don't have the word love in them.) Here is your chance to be the artist- Just leave you quote in the comments, with the author if possible. And I will design it into something truely awesome. (If I end up using your quote you'll win a set of Mary Summerhays valentines.)
I'll leave you with one of my poetic favorites from Jim- "You sound like a sad mule clomping along."
As you can see, I need another 30.
