Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Desire

Ese’s challenge is to post a photo you have taken and a quote, attributed to its author, and of course related to your image. Every week on Sunday she posts a new prompt.

Prompt 6 – DESIRE

Swiss Sweets,

These sweets in a Zurich shop window at Christmas, certainly initiate a feeling of desire: for sweetness.

But then, my desire is to return to Denmark one day, and thus my second photo. However, as a H. C. Andersen story reminded us, I must also remember:

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
―Epicurus

Sønder Felding

The house Færgebo, which our family owned, in Sønder Felding, Denmark, dating back to 1801. The oldest house in the village.

    1. Thank you! Like you, I find profound wisdom in proverbs sayings and quotes and marvel at the way they can be so succinct in how they communicate to the reader. Thanks for following my blog. You will find a post quotes from around the word each thursday on a post called Proverbial Thursday. You might like that feature.
