Celebration Quotation – March 14, 2016

Today’s quote is from Romeo and Juliet:

"Wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast." Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Scene 3

Although the quote comes from a prior scene in the play with the Friar and Romeo, we think the advice his gives applies to both young lovers – and we love this watercolor portrait by artist John Masey Wright (1777-1866).  Wright was a master watercolorist and occasional scenic artist. Much of his work focused on illustrations of the works of Shakespeare and other poets.
