I ran across this lovely quote this morning at Design*Sponge:
If, of thy mortal goods, thou art bereft,I love how Sarah (from Blossom and Branch) nestled the hyacinths in milk glass in a small bed of wheatgrass. Clever, and so unassumingly charming!
And from thy slender store two loaves alone to thee are left,
Sell one and from the dole,
Buy Hyacinths to feed the soul.
Saadi (12th Century Persian Poet)
