Friday Quote: Get to it!

There has been something of a railway theme in some of my posts this week. Β So to maintain this momentum, today’s quote is train-linked…

And I could not resist letting you see this clip of another poem inspired by train travel: Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Railway”.

Have a marvellous weekend and may all your journeys be happy ones. πŸ˜€ πŸš‚

  1. I love the “railroad” theme. Great collection of poetry. My favorite is by Edna St. Vincent Millay: “My heart is warm with the friends I make, And better friends I’ll not be knowing, Yet there isn’t a train I wouldn’t take, No matter where it’s going.” Have a great weekend!

  2. If I hadn’t agreed to keep score for a cricket team (when I didn’t really need to), I wouldn’t have met Dave. If I hadn’t met Dave I wouldn’t know about West Somerset’s Railway Station, Stogumber. And if I hadn’t gone to Stogumber Station I would have missed Dave’s proposal of marriage to me there 21 years ago.
    Grasp those opportunities! x

  3. I haven’t travelled in a modern high speed train; does one even get a glimpse of the scenery? Or is it a blur? This poem evokes nostalgia.

  4. I have enjoyed this train theme! I had also forgotten the RLS poem. It was in all the anthologies I had as a child.

  5. P.S. I also meant to say that Will Rogers must have been a very witty man. I have read quite a few of his droll remarks.

    1. Yes, he seems to have been quite a character. One of his other quotes which I like is ‘never miss a good chance to shut up’ – genius! πŸ˜€
