Kerry of Real Toad's fame, set us searching for our favourite quote from Harper Lee's wonderful book "To Kill a Mockingbird." For added inspiration, she include a still from the film, and how could I resist an excuse to look at Atticus Finch again? :) This was my choice:-
“People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.”
The day is dull and overcast;rainclouds fight the sun.
But I look and see a rainbow -
aren't I the lucky one?
The traffic thunders on the road -
but is that all I hear?
No! Close by a blackbird trills
its song that I hold dear.
It's all about perception;
this point of view we choose,
and if we seek the positive,
what do we have to lose?
Why, just the stress and anguish
that pessimism brings
to you, or me - or even
to 'cabbages and kings!'
With thanks also to the Walrus and the Carpenter, to whom Lewis Carroll gave a wonderful perception all their own. :)
And NaPoRiMo has definitely got me going, for there's a second write for today here!
