I have been collecting quotes for calendars. as a special request from a reader, who likes my circular calendars, I made this new set. Slightly different (less pretty and flowery font) with calendar/time related quotes around the circle, rather than the month names. As I have worked out a fairly quick way to do both the Sunday to Saturday and the Monday to Sunday versions, I have. Here is a little sample for you:
The quotes are:
Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and
resign yourself to the influences of each.
How do you measure a year? Measure, measure your life in love Share love, give love, spread love …
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of
Time, by moments, steals away, First the hour, and then the day;
Small the daily loss appears, Yet it soon amounts to years
Live in the present. Do the things that need to be done. Do all the good you can each day. The future will unfold.
The hours pass and the days and the months and the years, and the past time never returns.
We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery
We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes … How do you measure, measure a year?
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time…
…today, well lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a dream of hope.
And one I didn’t use: And in the end it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
The two pages I used as the sample show the two “special months” – February had a heart and December a star. The only thing to keep in mind is that these may slightly affect your circle, if you choose to cut them out or cut a mat to fit over them, as I showed in my CD case calendar sample. I think a 4 inch circle should allow all of them to fit, but do test it to be sure.
I may do a few more 2015 calendars, probably in the Project Life card size, but not till December/January at the latest. It makes my head hurt, all the obsessive checking of the dates and the alignment and the fonts and the spelling…. and I STILL am petrified I’ve made a mistake. You would tell me, wouldn’t you? I hope so!
