Today I'd like to just give you a few snapshots from our trip. Even though they say a picture is worth a thousand words, these still wouldn't be enough to tell you how special this trip was.
"You can find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London, all that life can afford." Samuel Johnson
"England is a nation of shopkeepers." Napoleon Bonaparte
(Liberty of London is now at Target, but hardly the same thing.)
"When it's three o'clock in New York, it's still 1938 in London." Bette Midler
"A man builds a house in England with the expectation of living in it and leaving it to his children; we shed our houses in America as easily as a snail does his shell." Harriet Beecher Stowe
"And now the time returns again:
Our souls exult, and London's towers
Receive the Lamb of God to dwell
In England's green and pleasant bowers."
"By seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can show." Samuel Johnson
