Thursday Is Art Day: May 20

Post from old blog.

Connecting a Picture and a Quote

I always connect this Garth Williams illustration from Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder with these words from Walden, by Henry David Thoreau:
“I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”
If Laura Ingalls, at the age she was in the picture, had heard that quotation, I’m sure she would have agreed perfectly!
