Reading the walls

Inspiration sometimes turns up in unexpected places. We stayed several days in this lovely inn and noticed messages in strategic places. Can you read it, or is the glare in the way?

"What would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail?"
Below is a little smaller, but worth the effort to read it, too. It's from Vincent Van Gogh.

"If you hear a voice within you saying, 'You are not a painter,' then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced."

Look below -- someone listened.

Her paintings are scattered throughout the inn.
For me, it was enough to see the quote beside the easel.
Now I think I'll log off and work on my book manuscript.

All photos from Sweetfield Manor. Readers, you know how much I need peace in my life; Sweetfield helped provide that, and good coffee, too.
