Book du jour - quoting

It's unexpected to make a book quickly. Even if it's a small book. I've had the "secret book" template for a while, and Janet supplied the quotes from her "gold books" in last year's "Overdue" exhibition at Camberwell library, so this is a sort of collaboration, and it has a pedigree. The sheet is  printed on both sides and I even found something slightly better than typing paper (which is toooo white - !) to print these wise words on to.

My favourite quotes include:

A work of art is above all an adventure of the mind (Eugene Ionesco)

Mistakes are the portals of discovery (James Joyce)

Argument is meant to reveal the truth, not to create it (Edward de Bono)

Gardening* is an instrument of grace (May Sarton)

(*Today I planted some tulip bulbs. Red parrot tulips; 10 bulbs, not enough really, but it's a start.)
