Q U O T A B L E : I love a good quote. Don't you? I have been jotting down quotes for as long as I can remember, or more specifically since I started keeping a journal in middle school. (Holy moly, that's a long time!) I was drawn to the quote by John Keats above for the beautiful sentiment, yes, but what really caught my eye was the hand lettering created by illustrator Marion Deuchars, which I found as I was reading the annual Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair. Deuchars' lettering is endearing and imperfect, like reading a letter from a friend.
N O T A B L E : Speaking of Hollywood, the Oscars happened last Sunday. Did you watch? Were you cheering for anyone? Of the movies that were nominated, we managed to see Silver Linings Playbook and Argo. I was thrilled when Ben Affleck won for best picture. He has certainly come into his own since Good Will Hunting (still one of my favorite movies). Coincidentally, Good Will Hunting came out at the same time that I was living in Boston, which made me love the movie even more. Since we're speaking about quotes, my favorite from the movie:
"See, the sad thing about a guy like you is in 50 years you're gonna start doing some thinking on your own and you're gonna come up with the fact that there are two certainties in life. One, don't do that. And two, you dropped a hundred and fifty grand on a f***ing education you coulda got for a dollah fifty in late charges at the public library."
Remember that scene?
