The clearer we should see through it


I spotted this image a few weeks ago on Billie Denise’s blog and was so pleased when I asked if I could share it here and she said yes! Billie is a graphic designer and I love how she illustrated this quote. Not only did the image catch my eye, but I’ve never read this quote before. It was said by Niccolò Machiavelli who was an Italian writer, philosopher, and humanist. It made me stop and think about what I’ll be like when I’m older. I wonder if I really will know more than I do now, or if I’ll just have even more questions. I’d like to think I’ll be a wise old woman with a huge smile on my face, but for now I’d much rather just enjoy my time… and hopefully that’ll lead to that old woman or a happy version of it eventually. Do you think you’ll be able to see through the hourglass clearer as time goes on? Have you already noticed it? Either way, I wish you a glorious weekend!
