Writers Quote Wednesday – INNOCENCE

10 Aug

Welcome to another edition of Writers Quote Wednesday sponsored by Colleen Chesebro of ‘Silver Threading‘ and Ronovan Hester of ‘Ronovan Writes‘. Anyone can participate by choosing a quote by a favorite writer then you may add artwork, photography, a short piece of flash fiction or poetry to share with us all. You can add anything you like to highlight your quote. Have fun with it!

We have a great theme this week: INNOCENCE chosen by Colleen.

Innocence actually means a state that is unblemished by guilt, malice or any other wicked intentions. So shouldn’t we try to hang on to some of our innocence? Innocence should never be misconstrued as ignorance. As adults we should seek knowledge and experience, but there’s a part of us that can always remain innocent.

“A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure, a messenger of peace and love, a resting place for innocence on earth, a link between angels and men.”

~Martin Farquhar Tupper

“An honest man is always a child.”


“When we take revenge against another, we lose some of our innocence.”

~Patrice Redd Vecchione

“No security of mind is so salutary as that of innocence: guilt, however confident, has inexorable fears.”

~Norman MacDonald

“Innocence tinctures all things with brightest hues.”

~Edward Counsel
