So interesting that this quote doesn’t seem to have an author attached to it. Who was the first to say these words? There are plenty that took them and copied them onto images on Pinterest and on their quote websites, but as far as a 15 minute google search could get, there was no trail of the author.
Isn’t that fascinating given the quote? Perhaps the author didn’t want to be credited because they don’t have a big ego of their own that needed credit.
Or perhaps they think it small-minded to need accreditation of their words.
I’m sure if I had time to do a more exhaustive search, I might be able to track it down, but as it’s packing night, I don’t have that extra time.
So I’ll just leave you with this quote and this image, taken at Warwick Castle in Warwick, England. Just inside the castle gates was this collection of armor. Surely a reminder of the battles that have been fought and won, the lives lost, and the dynasties that rose and fell within the gates of this historic castle.
