Paddy's Birthday

Today my youngest child Paddy is eleven!   When I took these pictures yesterday, he was completely and totally oblivious to me until the last one (then he gave me permission to photograph his Last Day of Being Ten, so these aren't stealth attack photos).   The book is Percy Wynn.

“No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally – and often far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.” 

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” 
Charles William Eliot

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” ― 
Stephen King, On Writing

“Think before you speak. Read before you think.”
 ― Fran Lebowitz

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

More quotes about reading at Goodreads.     Fun!

  1. Happy birthday to the youngest Ryan!

    Eleven years old! I remember waiting for your arrival with heavy prayer, worry and hopefulness. Someday you will know that....but for can still live in the oblivion of a "normal" life :) Love you, Paddy!
