No place is more enchanted than where a unicorn has been born. Peter S. Beagle

Unicorns, aren’t they extinct in the modern world? Poor little fellow, he must feel sort of lonesome. Tennessee Williams, excerpt from “The Glass Menagerie”

Like a lion, without fear of the howling pack; like a gust of wind, never trapped in a snare; like a lotus blossom, never sprinkled by water; like me, like a unicorn, in solitude. Hymn of Buddha

It has milk-white skin and milk-white horn and…bathes by the sound of tabors at the rising of the sun. William Butler Yeats

That music, I must go nearer – sweet marvelous music…the tramplings of unicorns…the mountain is shaking with their feet. William Butler Yeats

Never play leapfrog with a unicorn. Anonymous

Despite their magical mystery and beauty, unicorn shit still stinks. Michael Bancroft

About jeneanecommonplacebook

What Is a Commonplace Book? A commonplace book is someone’s personal collection of quotes, witticisms, observances, poems, and even graffiti that have inspired them, made them laugh or touched them in some way. Many famous people throughout history have had commonplace books, such as Thomas Jefferson, John Milton, Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau, and the scientist, Carl Linnaeus. I began my commonplace books while I was in junior high school in the early 1970’s and so I have almost 50 years of quotes about such a wide variety of topics told in ways more eloquent, wise or humorous than anything I could ever come up with. And it’s wonderful that in this type of blog, I can also include some of my favorite artists and their artwork as well. I'm almost 60 years old with a daughter, 3 granddaughters, and a kitty-cat. I live in beautiful Bay City, MI. I have 2 associate degrees with additional college credits and hopefully I will be able to complete my goal of obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. (Life keeps getting in the way). I enjoy literature, horse racing, baseball, NFL football, The Olympics, astronomy, history (particularly Irish), art, old movies, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, Unit One, science, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, U2, The Doors, oh and so much more! I have very eclectic and prolific interests. If you would like to check out my personal writings, please go to jeneanebehmeswritings.wordpress.com
