John Ruskin quote in my great-grandmother Amy’s notebook of inspirational quotations, circa 1919.
Another old book spruce-up. Inspirational John Kendrick Bangs poem from his 1920 book, The Cheery Way. I flowered and leaved it up a bit to add some color.
Funny excerpt about lines getting tangled from public domain book Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) by Jerome K. Jerome, 1889. I spruced it up new-style old-style.

“Girls aren’t beautiful, they’re pretty. Beautiful is too heavy a word to assign to a girl. Women are beautiful because their faces show that they know they have lost something and picked up something else.”
