This plaque has been on the door of my bedroom for over 21 years now.

I've passed by it easily more than five thousand times, 
thus heaping blasphemy upon the first and last lines; 
the three in between I follow religiously though.

  1. What a lovely one! 21 years? wow! I left home when I was 17 but sometimes I wish what would I see when I go back to my room from that that time. Those posters, the books, a dried rose in books - gosh! I feel like writing a post ;)

    1. Technically, I left at the end of the last century for my mbbs and after that always only landed up at home in between holidays. But I realized this plaque has always been on my door and I distinctly remember where and when I bought it. Found many books as well.. None of the old poster collection

  3. You made me chuckle - maybe, though, I do need something inspirational on my door.

  10. It is indeed a beautiful quote. I too have one at home (different quote). It really makes for a motivating read when leaving the home! :)

  11. Lovely quote - like having a constant reminder of how little time we have to do good and how we should make the most of it. You must have been pretty young when you put that up. I've never lived in the same place for 21 years.
