Food for thought

The Village on Venetian Bay, Naples


"Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle."
Dr. Robert Anthony (self-help guru)

Hmmm...Happy weekend everyone!

I love the quote. I should ask myself daily...are you drinking or garling.

LOL, I'm sorry but I love W.C. Fields :)

Great photo looking very Italian and I love the quote too-makes you laugh and think.

Peter said...

Just beautiful!!! and the words that go with the photo as perfectly chosen!

Even forgetting about the philosophical message, fountains is really a wonderful "invention"!

I pretty much gargled in the fountain of mathematics and drank in the fountain of language.

Kate said...

yes, the quote is very appropriate. I guess I'll continue to gargle! The environment for the fountain is wonderful. I posted a similar photo of fountain only on my Maz blog on Feb 21, if you have the time and inclination to look. My links on comment sections don't work as they do on my own posts. And unless I figure out a way....
Great post, Isabella!

Gargle, gargle

By the way, ever wonder where Mardi Gras beads come from? I have photo evidence and I reveal it today on NewOlreansDailyPhoto.com

It could be Naples' version of the Bocca della Verità, but then you wouldn't be able either to drink or gargle; just to be trapped... ;)

I saw the word 'Food...' and thought 'Oh goody, something to eat.' Now I see I need to be attending to my mind. Life is hard at times...

have a great day you too Isabella!

Lavenderlady said...

In answer to your post on my blog, we do have deer...but the really great thing is they don't like lavender. Now my roses...

Frank said...

I am definitely a gargler when it comes to knowledge.
Sally's comment was great!
Have a bon weekend!

People gargling from the fountain of knowledge is fine - it's when they spit it out that I get annoyed
