Pinterest Pick: Words, Words

Samantha, my daughter and favorite English major geek, talks about her love for language today in her guest post...

I don't know about all of you, but I love a good word or collection of words.  Some of my favorite words are the following:

kismet (the name I wish I could name my future daughter, but decided to name my car instead)

I pick a favorite word basically because of how it feels to say or hear.  It just feels good to form the word in your mouth, or it makes a beautiful sound.  Anyone else have favorite words, or am I just a weird English major?

What I might love even more than words is quotes.  When I was a student teacher, I put a "Quote of the Day" on the board every day to get my students thinking.  To be honest, a lot of the time I found my quotes on Pinterest based on some beautiful design work...

Beautiful words? Check.  Beautiful design? Double check.  I found this print by Alyssa Nassner around Valentine's Day this year.

C.S. Lewis is a personal favorite author, philosopher, theologian (can he be my favorite everything??), etc. and I think he would have particularly loved this illustration by this lovely lady.  I know I do.

Goodness gracious, do I love watercolor. (Oh, you love watercolor too? Then you should go here.)  This print and others are sold by The Wheatfield on Etsy.  The colors are just marvelous.

Here are a few more designs that are just for fun :)

Abraham Lincoln, teehee.

Do you have any favorite words or quotes?  Share with me! And remember to follow The Noble Wife on Pinterest!

Happy pinning, and happy weekend!



  1. I love using quotes in my pieces and then using them as hangings around the house for inspiration.

    I received my book yesterday, lots of wonderful projects and recipes to enjoy, thank you so much.

    My favorite quote is:
    Life is a tapestry: We are the warp; angels, the weft; God, the weaver. Only the Weaver sees the whole design. ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994


  2. I have to agree with honest Abe Lincoln- haha! You have to be very careful about stuff you find on the Interwebs!!

  3. Too funny your quote from Abe Lincoln!! I guess since I love to read that makes me a lover of words. What I always find interesting is how sometimes certain words that you have used for a long time will suddenly sound strange when you say them over and over. Maybe I am weird and that only happens to me. I also love C.S. Lewis and introduced my kids at a very young age to the Chronicles of Narnia. All of us are so happy that we live in a time when they can make the movies with all the special effects that can be done now.

  4. Great article!
