Inner Space is something that people overlook in their day-to-day life. Modern life is so focused on work work work. But what are you working on? What are you working towards? How are you working?
We all have to find the balance in our lives. Time must be spent on earning a living (obviously there are exceptions for those who have inherited or live on a commune.)

Do not pour over it and try to implement everything. Take from it what you can use. There are many interesting ways to making your life more productive and having time for some fun.

Saint Lucy’s Day is celebrated most commonly in Scandinavia, with their long dark winters, where it is a major feast day, and in Italy, with each emphasising a different aspect of the story. In Scandinavia, where Saint Lucy is called Santa Lucia in Norwegianand Sankta Lucia in Swedish, she is represented as a lady in a white dress and red sash with a crown or wreath of candles on her head. In Norway, Sweden and Swedish-speaking regions of Finland, girls dressed as Lucy carry rolls and cookies in procession as songs are sung. Boys participate in the procession as well, playing different roles associated with Christmas. It is said that to vividly celebrate Saint Lucy’s Day will help one live the long winter days with enough light. A special devotion to Saint Lucy is practiced in the Italian regions of Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Trentino-Alto Adige, in the north of the country, and Sicily, in the south, as well as in Croatian coastal region of Dalmatia. In Hungary and Croatia, a popular tradition on Saint Lucy’s Day involves planting wheat grains that will eventually be several centimetres high on Christmas, representing the Nativity.
An inscription in Syracuse dedicated to Euskia mentioning St Lucy’s Day as a local feast dates back to the 4th century A.D., which states “Euskia, the irreproachable, lived a good and pure life for about 25 years, died on my Saint Lucy’s feast day, she for whom I cannot find appropriate words of praise: she was a Christian, faithful, perfection itself, full of thankfulness and gratitude”. The Feast of Saint Lucy became a universal feast of the Church in the 6th century, commemorating the Christian martyr‘s death on 13 December 304 A.D. St. Lucy’s Day appears in the sacramentary of Gregory, as well as that of Bede, and Christian churches were dedicated to Saint Lucy in Italy as well as in England.
Later, Christian missionaries arrived in Scandinavia to evangelize the local population, carrying the commemoration of Saint Lucy with them, and this “story of a young girl bringing light in the midst of darkness no doubt held great meaning for people who, in the midst of a North Sea December, were longing for the relief of warmth and light”.Saint Lucy is one of the few saints celebrated by the overwhelmingly LutheranNordic people — Danes; Swedes; Finns and Norwegians but also in USA and Canada and Italy. It is speculated that the St. Lucy’s Day celebrations in Scandinavia alone may retain a few indigenous Germanic pagan, pre-Christian midwinter elements. Some of the practices associated with the Feast of Saint Lucy may predate the adoption of Christianity in that region, and like much of Scandinavian folklore and even religiosity, is centered on the annual struggle between light and darkness. The Nordic observation of St. Lucy is first attested in the Middle Ages, and continued after the Protestant Reformation in the 1520s and 1530s, although the modern celebration is only about 200 years old. It is likely that tradition owes its popularity in the Nordic countries to the extreme change in daylight hours between the seasons in this region.
The pre-Christian holiday of Yule, or jól, was the most important holiday in Scandinavia and Northern Europe. Originally the observance of the winter solstice, and the rebirth of the sun, it brought about many practices that remain in the Advent and Christmas celebrations today. The Yule season was a time for feasting, drinking, gift-giving, and gatherings, but also the season of awareness and fear of the forces of the dark.
While this does not hold for our current Gregorian calendar, a discrepancy of 8 days would have been the case in the Julian calendar during the 14th century, resulting in Winter solstice falling on December 13. With the original adoption of the Gregorian calendar in the 16th century the discrepancy was 10 days and had increased to 11 days in the 18th century when Scandinavia adopted the new calendar, with Winter solstice falling on December 9.
It is very difficult to tell the exact date of the Winter solstice without modern equipment (although the Neolithic builders of the Newgrange monument seem to have managed it). The day itself is not visibly shorter than the several days leading up to and following it and although the actual Julian date of Winter solstice would have been on the December 15 or 14 at the time when Christianity was introduced to Scandinavia, December 13 could well have lodged in peoples mind as being the shortest day.
The choice of 13 December as Saint Lucy’s day, however, obviously predates the 8 day error of the 14th century Julian calendar. This date is attested in the pre-Tridentic Monastic calendar, probably going back to the earliest attestations of her life in the 6th and 7th centuries, and it is the date used throughout Europe. So, while the world changed from a Julian to a Gregorian calendar system—and hence acquired a new date for the Winter Solstice—St Lucy’s Day was kept at December 13, and not moved to the 21.
In the Roman Empire, the 25 of December (in the Julian Calendar) date was celebrated as being the day when the Sun was born, the birthday of Sol Invictus, as can be seen in the Chronography of 354. This date corresponding to the date of the Winter solstice. Early Christians considered this a likely date for their saviour’s nativity, as it was commonly held that the world was created on Spring equinox (thought to fall on March 25 at the time), and that Christ had been conceived on that date, being born 9 months later on Winter solstice.
A Swedish source states that the date of (Winter Solstice, St. Lucia, Lucinatta, Lucia-day, Lussi-mass …) i.e. December 13, predates the Gregorian which implies that “Lucia’s Day” was Dec 13 in the Julian Calendar, which is equal to December 21 in the Gregorian, i.e. now. Same source states use of the name “Little Yule” for the day, that it was among the most important days of the year, that it marked the start of Christmas month, and that with the move to the Gregorian calendar (in Sweden 1753) the date (not the celebration) “completely lost its appropriateness/significance”.
Lussinatta, the Lussi Night, was marked in Sweden December 13. Then Lussi, a female being with evil traits, like a female demon or witch, was said to ride through the air with her followers, called Lussiferda. This itself might be an echo of the myth of the Wild Hunt, called Oskoreia in Scandinavia, found across Northern, Western and Central Europe.
Between Lussi Night and Yule, trolls and evil spirits, in some accounts also the spirits of the dead, were thought to be active outside. It was believed to be particularly dangerous to be out during Lussi Night. According to tradition, children who had done mischief had to take special care, since Lussi could come down through the chimney and take them away, and certain tasks of work in the preparation for Yule had to be finished, or else the Lussi would come to punish the household. The tradition of Lussevaka – to stay awake through the Lussinatt to guard oneself and the household against evil, has found a modern form through throwing parties until daybreak. Another company of spirits was said to come riding through the night around Yule itself, journeying through the air, over land and water.
According to the traditional story, Lucy was born of rich and noble parents about the year 283. Her father was of Roman origin, but died when she was five years old, leaving Lucy and her mother without a protective guardian. Although no sources for her life-story exist other than in hagiographies, St. Lucy, whose name Lucia refers to “light” (Lux, lucis), is believed to have been a Sicilian saint who suffered a sad death in Syracuse, Sicily around AD 310.Jacobus de Voragine‘s Golden Legend first compiled in the 13th century, a widespread and influential compendium of saint’s biographies, records her story thus: She was seeking help for her mother’s long-term illness at the shrine of Saint Agnes, in her native Sicily, when an angel appeared to her in a dream beside the shrine. As a result of this, Lucy became a devout Christian, refused to compromise her virginity in marriage and was denounced to the Roman authorities by the man she would have wed. According to the legend, she was threatened to be taken to a brothel if she did not renounce her Christian beliefs, but were unable to move her, even with a thousand men and fifty oxen pulling. Instead they stacked materials for a fire around her and set light to it, but she would not stop speaking, insisting that her death would lessen the fear of it for other Christians and bring grief to non-believers. One of the soldiers stuck a spear through her throat to stop these denouncements, but to no effect. Soon afterwards, the Roman consulate in charge was hauled off to Rome on charges of theft from the state and beheaded. Saint Lucy was able to die only when she was given the Christian sacrament. All the details of her life are the conventional ones associated with female martyrs of the early 4th century. John Henry Blunt views her story as a Christian romance similar to the Acts of other virgin martyrs. In another story, Saint Lucy was working to help Christians hiding in the catacombs during the terror under the Roman EmperorDiocletian, and in order to bring with her as many supplies as possible, she needed to have both hands free. She solved this problem by attaching candles to a wreath on her head.[attribution needed]
There is little evidence that the legend itself derives from the folklore of northern Europe, but the similarities in the names (“Lussi” and “Lucia”), and the date of her festival, December 13, suggest that two separate traditions may have been brought together in the modern-day celebrations in Scandinavia. Saint Lucy is often depicted in art with a palm as the symbol of martyrdom.
Catholic celebrations take place on the 13th of December and in May. Saint Lucy or Lucia, whose name comes from the Latin word “lux” meaning light, links with this element and with the days growing longer after the Winter solstice.
St. Lucy is the patron saint of the city of Syracuse (Sicily). On December 13th a silver statue of St. Lucy containing her relics is paraded through the streets before returning to the Cathedral of Syracuse. Sicilians recall a legend that holds that a famine ended on her feast day when ships loaded with grain entered the harbor. Here, it is traditional to eat whole grains instead of bread on December 13. This usually takes the form of cuccia, a dish of boiled wheat berries often mixed with ricotta and honey, or sometimes served as a savory soup with beans.
St. Lucy is also popular among children in some regions of North-Eastern Italy, namely Trentino, East Lombardy (Bergamo, Brescia, Cremona, Lodi and Mantua), parts of Veneto, (Verona), parts of Emilia-Romagna, (Piacenza, Parma, Reggio Emilia and Bologna), and all of Friuli, where she is said to bring gifts to good children and coal to bad ones the night between December 12 and 13. According to tradition, she arrives in the company of a donkey and her escort, Castaldo. Children are asked to leave some coffee for Lucia, a carrot for the donkey and a glass of wine for Castaldo. They must not watch Santa Lucia delivering these gifts, or she will throw ashes in their eyes, temporarily blinding them.
In Hungary and Croatia, a popular tradition on Saint Lucy’s Day involves planting wheat grains that will eventually be several centimetres high on Christmas; this new wheat serves as symbolic of the new life born in Bethlehem, the Nativity, and a candle is sometimes placed near the new plant “as a symbol of the Light of Christ”.
In Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland, Lucy (called Lucia) is venerated on December 13 in a ceremony where a girl is elected to portray Lucia. Wearing a white gown with a red sash and a crown of candles on her head, she walks at the head of a procession of women, each holding a candle. The candles symbolize the fire that refused to take St. Lucy’s life when she was sentenced to be burned. The women sing a Lucia song while entering the room, to the melody of the traditional Neapolitan song Santa Lucia; the Italian lyrics describe the view from Santa Lucia in Naples, the various Scandinavian lyrics are fashioned for the occasion, describing the light with which Lucia overcomes the darkness. Each Scandinavian country has lyrics in their native tongues. After finishing this song, the procession sings Christmas carols or more songs about Lucia.
The Swedish lyrics to the Neapolitan song Santa Lucia have traditionally been either Natten går tunga fjät (The Night steps heavily)or Sankta Lucia, ljusklara hägring (Saint Lucy, bright mirage). There is also a modern version with simpler lyrics for children: Ute är mörkt och kallt (Outside, it’s dark and cold).
Although St. Lucy’s Day is not an official holiday in Sweden, it is a popular occasion in Sweden. At many universities, students hold big formal dinner parties since this is the last chance to celebrate together before most students go home to their families for Christmas.
The modern tradition of having public processions in the Swedish cities started in 1927 when a newspaper in Stockholm elected an official Lucy for Stockholm that year. The initiative was then followed around the country through the local press. Today most cities in Sweden appoint a Lucy every year. Schools elect a Lucy and her maids among the students and a national Lucy is elected on national television from regional winners. The regional Lucies will visit shopping malls, old people’s homes and churches, singing and handing out gingernut cookies (pepparkakor). Guinness World Records has noted the Lucy procession in Ericsson Globe in Stockholm as the largest in the world, with 1200 participants from Adolf Fredrik’s Music School, Stockholms Musikgymnasium and Stockholmläns Blåsarsymfoniker.
Boys take part in the procession, playing different roles associated with Christmas. Some may be dressed in the same kind of white robe, but with a cone-shaped hat decorated with golden stars, called stjärngossar (star boys); some may be dressed up as “tomtenissar” (Santa’s elves), carrying lanterns; and some may be dressed up as gingerbread men. They participate in the singing and also have a song or two of their own, usually Staffan Stalledräng, which tells the story about Saint Stephen, the first Christian martyr, caring for his five horses. Some trace the “re-birth” of the Lucy celebrations in Sweden to the tradition in German Protestant families of having girls dressed as angelic Christ children, handing out Christmas presents. The Swedish variant of this white-dressed Kindchen Jesus, or Christkind, was called Kinken Jes, and started to appear in upper-class families in the 18th century on Christmas Eve with a candle-wreath in her hair, handing out candy and cakes to the children. Another theory claims that the Lucy celebration evolved from old Swedish traditions of “star boys” and white-dressed angels singing Christmas carols at different events during Advent and Christmas. In either case, the current tradition of having a white-dressed woman with candles in her hair appearing on the morning of the Lucy Day started in the area around Vänern in the late 18th century and spread slowly to other parts of the country during the 19th century.

A special baked bun, Lussekatt (St. Lucy Bun), made with saffron and in use as early as November, is a very popular Christmas tradition.
Since 2008 there has been some controversy over males as Lucy, with one male who was elected Lucy at a high school being blocked from performing, and another performing together with a female. In another case a six-year-old boy was not allowed to appear with a Lucy crown because the school said it couldn’t guarantee his safety.
The Finnish celebrations have been historically tied to Swedish culture and the Swedish-speaking Finns. They observe “Luciadagen” a week before the Winter Solstice. St Lucy is celebrated as a “beacon of brightness” in the darkest time of year. The first records of St. Lucy celebrations in Finland are from 1898, and the first large celebrations came in 1930, a couple of years after the popularization of the celebrations in Sweden. The St. Lucy of Finland has been elected since 1949 and she is crowned in the Helsinki Cathedral. Local St. Lucies are elected in almost every place where there is a Swedish populace in Finland. The Finnish-speaking population has also lately begun to embrace the celebrations.

In Denmark, the Day of Lucy (Luciadag) was first celebrated on December 13, 1944. The tradition was directly imported from Swedenby initiative of Franz Wend, secretary of Föreningen Norden, as an attempt “to bring light in a time of darkness”. Implicitly it was meant as a passive protest against German occupation during the Second World War but it has been a tradition ever since.
Although the tradition is imported from Sweden, it differs somewhat in that the church celebration has always been strongly centered on Christianity and it is a yearly local event in most churches in conjunction with Christmas. Schools and kindergartens also use the occasion to mark the event as a special day for children on one of the final days before the Christmas holidays, but it does not have much impact anywhere else in society.
There are also a number of additional historical traditions connected with the celebration, which are not widely observed. The night before candles are lit and all electrical lights are turned off, and on the Sunday closest to December 13 Danes traditionally attend church.
The traditional Danish version of the Neapolitan song is not especially Christian in nature, the only Christian concept being “Sankta Lucia”. Excerpt: “Nu bæres lyset frem | stolt på din krone. | Rundt om i hus og hjem | sangen skal tone.” (“The light’s carried forward | proudly on your crown. | Around in house and home | The song shall sound now.“)
The Christian version used in churches is Sankta Lucia from 1982, by priest Holger Lissner.
Historically Norwegians considered what they called Lussinatten the longest night of the year and no work was to be done. From that night until Christmas, spirits, gnomes and trolls roamed the earth. Lussi, a feared enchantress, punished anyone who dared work. Legend also has it that farm animals talked to each other on Lussinatten, and that they were given additional feed on this longest night of the year. The Lussinatt, the night of December 13, was largely forgotten in Norway at the beginning of the 20th century, though still remembered as an ominous night, and also celebrated in some areas, especially in Mid, Central and Eastern inland.
It was not until after World War II that the modern celebration of Lucia in Norway became adopted on a larger scale. It is now again observed all over the country.
Like the Swedish tradition, and unlike the Danish, Lucy is largely a secular event in Norway, and is observed in kindergartens and schools (often through secondary level). However, it has in recent years also been incorporated in the Advent liturgy in the Church of Norway. The boys are often incorporated in the procession, staging as magi with tall hats and star-staffs. Occasionally, anthems of Saint Stephen are taken in on behalf of the boys.
For the traditional observance of the day, school children form processions through the hallways of the school building carrying candles, and hand out lussekatt buns. While rarely observed at home, parents often take time off work to watch these school processions in the morning, and if their child should be chosen Lucia it is considered a great honor. Later on in the day, the procession usually visits local retirement homes, hospitals, and nursing homes.
The traditional Norwegian version of the Neapolitan song is, just like the Danish, not especially Christian in nature, the only Christian concept being “Sankta Lucia”. Excerpt: “Svart senker natten seg | i stall og stue. | Solen har gått sin vei | skyggene truer.” (“The night descends black | in stable and living room. | The sun has gone away | the shadows threaten.”)
In Saint Lucia, a tiny island in the Caribbean named after its patron saint, St. Lucy, December 13 is celebrated as National Day. The National Festival of Lights and Renewal is held the night before the holiday, in honour of St Lucy of Syracuse the saint of light. In this celebration, decorative lights (mostly bearing a Christmas theme) are lit in the capital city of Castries; artisans present decorated lanterns for competition; and the official activities end with a fireworks display. In the past, a jour ouvert celebration has continued into the sunrise of 13 December.
In the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), which is the successor church to hundreds of Scandinavian and German Lutheran congregations, St. Lucy is treated as a commemoration on December 13, in which red vestments are worn. Usually, the Sunday in Advent closest to December 13 is set aside for St. Lucy, in which the traditional Scandinavian procession is observed.

The tradition of planting wheat on St. Lucy’s Day comes from Hungary, Croatia and other European nations. Plant wheat grains in a round dish or plate of soil, then water the seeds. Place the container in a warm spot. If the planting medium is kept moist (not sopping wet), the seeds will germinate and the shoots will be several inches high by Christmas. Then the new green shoots, reminding us of the new life born in Bethlehem, may be tied with a ribbon, if desired, and a candle may be placed near them as a symbol of the Light of Christ.

This timing, and her name meaning light, is a factor in the particular devotion to St. Lucy in Scandinavian countries, where young girls dress as the saint in honor of the feast. Traditionally the oldest daughter of any household will dress up in a white robe with a red sash and a wreath of evergreens and 12 lighted candles upon her head. Assisted by any siblings she may have, she then serves coffee and a special St Lucia bun (a Lussekatt in Norwegian) to her parents and family. The Lussekatter or Lusseboller are spiced buns flavoured with saffron and other spices and traditionally presented in the form shown in the image, an inverted S with two raisins a-top (perhaps representing St Lucy’s plucked out eyes!?).

“The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.”
Robert Frost (March26, 1874 – January29, 1963 American poet.)
“Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don’t see what goes on underground – as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don’t see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.”
Joyce Meyer (June 4, 1943 Christian author and speaker.)
“All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.”
J. R. R. Tolkien (3 January 1892 – 2 September 1973 English writer, poet, philologist and university professor.)
Just in case you don’t know what a philologist is.
Philologyis the study of language in written historical sources; it is a combination of literary criticism, history, and linguistics. It is more commonly defined as the study of literary texts and written records, the establishment of their authenticity and their original form, and the determination of their meaning.
“I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am.”
Sylvia Plath (October 27, 1932 – February 11, 1963 was one of the most renowned and influential poets, novelists, and short story writers of the 20th century.)
“Every human being is searching for a deep sense of meaning, and yet we’re all chasing success. We’ve confused one for the other.”
Donald Miller (born August 12, 1971 is a best-selling American author and public speaker.
These two quotes I found very amusing! This is Laughter medicine!
“Deep breaths are very helpful at shallow parties.”
Barbara Walters (born September 25, 1929 American broadcast journalist, an author, and a television personality.
“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.”

Temporary. Everything is Temporary. When you are amidst the angst you might not be able to appreciate that it is Temporary. Modern life puts so much pressure on us all. There is more uncertainty now than there has ever been. We all must learn to adapt and be flexible. Also as you move through life you realise that situations are Temporary. We all made it through our teen age years!
Don’t make struggles a permanent fixture in your life. Get through the daily grind by remembering that it is Temporary.
I would like to high light today that we must strive for happiness even if it is fleeting and Temporary. How are you spending your time? A good time to start doing something is when you begin. Start having some fun. Enjoy yourself.
Try a Nude Tantric Massage Experience and relax your mind and your body. Take time for yourself. Be able to focus more clearly. Feel the energy as it moves through your Chakras.
These are some quotes for you to ponder.

Benjamin Franklin (January 17, 1706 – April 17, 1790 American Polymath.)

Here are some intesting quotes about timing.

Eddie Huang (born March 1, 1982 American restaurateur, chef, food personality, writer, and attorney.)
“Life is about timing.”
Carl Lewis (born July 1, 1961 American former athlete, who won 10 Olympic medals.)

Octavia E. Butler (June 22, 1947 – February 24, 2006 American Science Fiction Writer.)
“Timing and arrogance are decisive factors in the successful use of talent.”
Marya Mannes (November 14, 1904 – September 13, 1990 Americanauthor and critic.)
“I’ve learned over the years to appreciate God’s timing, and you can’t rush things; it’s gonna happen exactly when it’s supposed to.”
Sevyn Streeter (born July 7, 1986 American singer and songwriter.)
Expectations. Lucy Massage. London Tantric Massage.
Sensual Nude Naturist Body to Body Tantric Massage London.
Today I have been prompted to explain EXPECTATIONS. I received the longest email ever.
Normally when I get an email it is about a question like “What do you wear?”. My response is my extremely well fitting Birthday Suit! The clue is in the NUDE TANTRIC MASSAGE. Others are asking if I am around on a particular date or time. My response is CALL to book as my lovely receptionist Leonie will do her utmost to agree a time and date which will fit in with your schedule.
There is always one that makes you think. In the email I received yesterday it detailed second by second exactly what the gentleman expected. He also copied and pasted all the wonderful comments that had been written about my Tantric Massage Experience.
What he failed to notice despite his copy and pasting was each comment was different. No two Tantric Massage Experiences were written about exactly the same. Each person experienced for themselves relaxation in their mind and body. That fact was the same. That is what I offer. The Ultimate Relaxation Experience.
I do not treat everyone exactly the same. Each session is different. Even if we have met before (sometimes many times over many years) the experience is different. I do not treat people like they are on a conveyor belt. Everyone is different. Everyday is different. I am different. The energy is different. He failed to appreciate that even for those who resist change what happens is everything around you changes. It is impossible to stay exactly the same.
Here is link to Lucy and Conveyor Belt YouTube Link. Hope it makes you smile!
For me I actively work on changing everyday. I seek out change. I seek out wisdom. I embrace change. Even when I have my “Free” time for example this weekend I attended a Shamanic Conference. I met and learned from wonderful Shamanic Practitioners from around the world. I shared also my wisdom with them. Even speakers who were not the most eloquent, I learnt how not the explain and present the wisdom I am trying to convey.
You can learn a lot from bad teachers. Not everyone speaks to you in a way that you can understand and respond to. Their energy may not sit well with you. They might grate with your own views and feelings. But you can still learn a lot.
I endevour to impart my Tantric teachings in a Shamanic Way each day with everyone I interact with. It is the way I live. Because I do this daily I have enormous experience. I have been practicing for over 20 years. My journey as a Shaman started very early for me. I was only 5 years old when I was noticed.
Please see ABOUT ME for details of my qualifications and membership of professional bodies.
The main message is Expect the very best. Do not put obstacles in your own path. But at the same time you have to have the ability to maneuver in the moment. Even if you have done something repetitively for many times there will come a day when chaos happens. No matter how practiced you are. No matter how fixed your expectations are. The universe will teach you. It is your choice when something different happens whether you learn from that experience.
Have you expectations but be optimistic and expect the very best!
My message to Mr copy and paste is start living with a beginners mind. Live in the moment. Start to have fun and enjoy life. You cant control it. Enjoy the journey. Expectations could bred discontentment when you are too future orientated. Have a laugh and be spontaneous!

These are some quotes I like about London.
“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 ( 1709-1784 often referred to as Dr Johnson English writer.)
“I don’t know what London’s coming to — the higher the buildings the lower the morals.”
Noel Coward (16 December 1899 – 26 March 1973 English playwright, composer, director, actor and singer.)
“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (22 May 1859 – 7 July 1930 British writer and physician.)
“Go where we may, rest where we will, Eternal London haunts us still.”
Thomas Moore (28 May 1779 – 25 February 1852 Irishpoet, singer, songwriter.)
“Come with me, ladies and gentlemen who are in any wise weary of London: come with me: and those that tire at all of the world we know: for we have new worlds here.”
Lord Dunsany (24 July 1878 – 25 October 1957 Irish writer and dramatist.)
Here comes the fun! These quotes made me smile about London. Have a laugh as laughter is the best medicine.
“My Dad says that being a Londoner has nothing to do with where you’re born. He says that there are people who get off a jumbo jet at Heathrow, go through immigration waving any kind of passport, hop on the tube and by the time the train’s pulled into Piccadilly Circus they’ve become a Londoner.”
Ben Aaronovitch (born 1964 is a British author best known for the best-selling Rivers of London series of novels.)
“When it’s three o’clock in New York, it’s still 1938 in London. ”
Bette Midler (born December 1, 1945 is an American singer, songwriter, actress, comedian, and film producer .)

It is next to Euston Station if you fancy popping in. I have personally met the curators of this exhibition. It is very interesting as Shakespeare has such an impact even in these modern times. We still use a lot of his phases in language now.
