Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

The scale of our homes should be derived from the real needs of our daily lives, not from vanity, insecurity, or a need for public display. Home should be the setting for life, not the measure of it. James Gauer

"Beauty fades but dumb is forever."

Not sure it is accurate, but the quote is attributed to Judge Judy if you search it online.

There be those who do not be afraid of the sea
And they do be drownded.
But we do be afraid of the sea,
And we only be drownded now and again.
