To get ready for our discussion tomorrow on whether I could speak, here are some thoughts people have written down on skeletons. I really enjoy seeing how people have portrayed skeletons through the past few centuries. Happy to be part of all of it. I’ve included a link to a poster that you could use to bring skeleton art to your home or office.
– Lucy of Hadar
If you can’t get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you’d best teach it to dance.
– George Bernard Shaw
Rigid, the skeleton of habit alone upholds the human frame.
– Virginia Wolff
I have always been respectful, even reverential,
in a room where you can look a human skeleton in the eye sockets.
– Carl Sandburg
The world dies over and over again, but the skeleton always gets up and walks.
– Henry Miller, writer and painter
