from our ancestors,
we borrow it
from our children.

Totally love the picture. It reminds me of this French movie, "Like the Red Balloon." What do you mean by Wednesday Wisdom Gets Behind Earth Hour?

Ironically, that's really reliable.

cmklin07 - I do Wednesday Wisdom every Wednesday, it's an opportunity for me to share my favourite quotes. There's usually no rhyme or reason behind the selection, but this week I thought I'd put my quote to good use :)

Sr. Despedaça Corações - Teehee, I'm a walking oxymoron. Consistently inconsistent also works well :D

diamondsinchampagne - I had to fit in some balloons somewhere, but I agree, the proverb is just beautiful, and very very true!
