Keeping It Simple ...
"Peace is the beauty of life. It is sunshine. It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family."
Menachem Begin
"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive."
Eleonora Duse
"Perfect happiness is a beautiful sunset, the giggle of a grandchild, the first snowfall. It's the little things that make happy moments, not the grand events. Joy comes in sips, not gulps."
Sharon Draper
"​​​​​​​Childhood means simplicity. Look at the world with the child's eye - it is very beautiful."
Kailash Satyarthi
"Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering."
A.A. Milne
"If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good." Dr Seuss
"If you chase two rabbits, both will escape."
Chinese Proverb
A short biography of Julia Donaldson
A printable version of this poster is available here.
