TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 15 May 2018

Following in on my last blog post, here is my next Tuesday Thought post and I hope to continue this now with even more content in near future.

This week’s thought inspiration comes from Sir Winston Churchill. And the reason for this quote was to inspire myself and someone close to me who is just feeling a little low these days. I hope this inspires him/her and many other.

TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 28 Feb 2017

Today’s thought is by Ovid. He was Roman Poet who lived in the period of Augustus and his actual name was Publius Ovidius Naso. He was ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. Ovid talks more about his own life than most other Roman poets.

I really love ebonite as the material for the pen and this white blue swirl is something amazing. You have to hold in the hand to actually see and feel the beauty of the material.

A Very Happy New Year to you all. Today I am using one of the most beautiful pens ever made “Lamy 2000” and it comes with BB nib. It is filled with GvFC Hazelnut Brown.

The quote of today is inspired by Henry David Thoreau who was an American philosopher, poet, and historian. Thoreau was an ardent and outspoken abolitionist, serving as a conductor on the underground railroad to help escaped slaves make their way to Canada.  He wrote strongly-worded attacks on the Fugitive Slave Law (“Slavery in Massachusetts”).

The pen writes sublimely and in my opinion, is one of the greatest pens of all time. Simple yet powerful design.

Once again happy new year to all.
