Sunday Dinner: Anticipation



Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think.

Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do,

there was a moment just before you began to eat it

which was better than when you were,

but he didn’t know what it was called.”


A.A. Milne




“And I will never again underestimate

the power of anticipation.

There is no better boost in the present

than an invitation into the future.”


Caroline Kepnes




“It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing

while we are still alive.

There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good,

and we must hunger for them.”


George Eliot

  3. Great quotation to introduce an intriguing post.
