Quote Query

These quotes are a little different than the other quotes.  I’m thinking about picking one and putting them up on my wall in the room I’m redoing.  If you have thoughts, please share in the comments. 

So, here’s the question:  Which quote belongs in a bedroom over a writing nook and between a set of bookshelves?
