Words on Wednesday

“Toad, with no one to check his statements or to criticize in an unfriendly spirit, rather let himself go. Indeed, much that he related belonged more properly to the category of what-might-have-happened-had-I-only-thought-of-it-in-time-instead-of-ten-minutes-afterwards. Those are always the best and raciest adventures; and why should they not be truly ours, as much as the somewhat inadequate things that really come off?” 

--Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows


  1. I am just now reading The Wind in the Willows and I must say that I am enjoying it immensely. One of my very favorite parts about your blog is all the wonderful quotes you share! Your love of books never fails to inspire me to read a bunch more. I Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
