Art for Inspiration: In the Park by Giovanni Boldini

In the Park
by Giovanni Boldini (1842 - 1931)

No matter how close we are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog. Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself. I also suspect that we cherish dogs because their unblemished souls make us wish - consciously or unconsciously - that we were as innocent as they are, and make us yearn for a place where innocence is universal and where the meanness, the betrayals, and the cruelties of this world are unknown.
Dean Koontz, A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog

There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
