O Catch the Transient Hour

'Catch, then, 
O catch 
the transient
hour; improve 
each moment
as it flies!'

St. Jerome

Painting: Charles Courtney Curran


  1. Oh my gosh! That quote is so beautiful!

    1. Isn't it, Mary?! Absolute poetry. I ran across a few days ago and just had to share it immediately!

  2. (I will not steal this quote from Nancy. I will not steal this quote from Nancy. I will not...)

    1. Repeat after me: "It is not Nancy's quote it is St. Jerome's and it is just as much mine as 'Nancy's' so I can use it, share it, blog it, tape it to a mirror, embroider it on a pillow, sing it, pray it, meme it, skywrite it, frame it, use it in everyday conversation, paint it, do it...."

      Mary, are you repeating? Repeating? Repeating?

  3. Ha! Ha! You crack me up, Nancy! Yeah, I think you have sufficiently blasted this into my head to the point where even my normal spaciness has given way to your lovely mental "post it" note!
