A Design a Day – Day 197

Today’s design was semi Easter-inspired…

mostly, because I needed a theme, and the egg shapes commonly associated with Easter sprang to mind:

While every day has the potential to inspire wonder, fresh experiences and renewed hope, sometimes it takes special holidays to remind us to celebrate the little things

(like being alive, enjoying the company of those we love, and eating something a wee bit decadent.)

For the rest of the days when we can’t rely on chocolate bunnies to cheer us up, here are some words from the wise:

“Try not to become a man of success.  Rather become a man of value.”

(Albert Einstein)

“It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.”

(Mark Twain)

and perhaps my favorite…

“We carry within us the wonders we seek without us.”

(Sir Thomas Browne)
