Youthful sky beyond cloudy wrinkles

TWO antique illustrations of Victorian young ladies wearing ruffled outfits from c1890. The first portrait is of a young lady with glossy chestnut brown hair and clear, beautiful brown eyes that look out into the world serenely, lending her an air of easy, calm confidence.

The second portrait is also of a brunette. She is wearing a cluster of tiny, pink flowers pinned to her bodice and her crystal blue eyes gaze dreamily out into the world.

There's always another storm. It's the way the world works.
Snowstorms, rainstorms, windstorms, sandstorms, and firestorms.
Some are fierce and others are small.
You have to deal with each one separately,
but you need to keep an eye on whats brewing for tomorrow.
Maria V. Snyder, Fire Study

Printable Vintage Fashion Illustration: Victorian Ladies in Party Gowns, 1892

When you lost sight of your path, listen for the destination in your heart.
Katsura Hoshino

There’s something about arriving in new cities,
wandering empty streets with no destination.
I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I'm born to leave.

Free Printable Vintage Illustration for Cardmaking, Journaling, Scrapbooking or Wall Art: Conversation in the Conservatory, 1857

It is a wise thing to be polite; consequently, it is a stupid thing to be rude.
To make enemies by unnecessary and willful incivility,
is just as insane a proceeding as to set your house on fire.
For politeness is like a counter ― an avowedly false coin,
with which it is foolish to be stingy.
Arthur Schopenhauer, The Wisdom of Life and Counsels and Maxims

Life is short, but there is always time enough for courtesy.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Antique illustration originally published in 1857 showing two Victorian ladies in (one-sided?) conversation in a conservatory.
