" To have peace with this peculiar life; to accept what we do not understand; to wait calmly for what awaits us, you have to be wiser than I am"

Mary, actually I found the photo and the more I stared at it , it took on that Escher like quality so I went off to find a link and stumbled on his quotes.

Thanks everyone, I"m glad you liked this photo and the quote today. It really will fool the eye if you look long enough!

I knew it. As I first studied this photo I though, "she's been staring at Escher. Wonder what's up with that?" Bingo. No clear sense of our position in space.
