Today is my second post about our weekend at Panera Bread. These pictures hanging on the walls really affected me. A roll on a horn, (what could be better than bread and music?) a cave that is actually a round loaf of bread (I can see living in a loaf of bread, it would sure be better than the old woman who lived in a shoe. Instead of painting the walls, I would butter them), and last but not least, a boy offering Charlie Chaplin a bagel. This is my favorite, I find it somehow very touching. I don't know what Chaplin said to the boy, but here are some of his other quotes:
Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.
I am at peace with God. My conflict is with men.
The saddest thing I can imagine is to get used to luxury.
Reading the last quote makes me think that he would somehow like this bible verse, perhaps he would have enjoyed reading it over coffee and a bagel.
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 5:19
