U/Alphabe-Thursday

 Over and Under

U is for UNDER

Heaven is under our feet as well as well as over our heads.
~ Henry David Thoreau

Castle in the air

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundation under them.
~ Henry David Thoreau

Not  cool, calm and collected

Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.
~ Thomas Jefferson

Nice quotes, and lovely photos. I like the thought that heaven is under our feet. So often we forget to look for beauty and joy in the non-obvious places.

Debra @ Homespun said...

U is hard....this was GREAT! :)

Last year I went to a park to get UNDER a covered bridge. This year I was scrolling through older posts hoping to find something to use, lol! Whew, I did...but I love yours with the pics and quotes etc.
