How To Make Beautiful Greeting Cards

Famous quotes containing the words cards, beautiful and/or greeting:

    Oft have I played at cards and dice,
    Because they were so enticing;
    But this is a sad and sorrowful day
    To see my apron rising.
    Unknown. The Rantin Laddie (l. 1–4)

    Apart from their other characteristics, the outstanding thing about China’s 600 million people is that they are “poor and blank.” This may seem a bad thing, but in reality it is a good thing. Poverty gives rise to the desire for change, the desire for action and the desire for revolution. On a blank sheet of paper free from any mark, the freshest and most beautiful pictures can be painted.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)

    Half-opening her lips to the frost’s morning sigh, how strangely the rose has smiled on a swift-fleeting day of September!
    How audacious it is to advance in stately manner before the blue-tit fluttering in the shrubs that have long lost their leaves, like a queen with the spring’s greeting on her lips;
    to bloom with steadfast hope that, parted from the cold flower-bed, she may be the last to cling, intoxicated, to a young hostess’s breast.
    Afanasi Fet (1820–1892)
