Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed.

-- Corita Kent
I'm grateful to see a woman who's given me so much pleasure. And LibraryThing needs original characters and great book collectors, be they dead or living!

My compliments to Mrs. Gardner (and her friends).
This is lovely.
Lovely Collections. Thanks to the people/person that put this together. And might I recommend the following to Mrs Gardner:

"Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum: Guide to the Collection" (ISBN 0964847566)

It's a great book to have in your collection!
Dear Mrs.Gardner,

Today I discovered your library which I find very interesting - and not only because I am an Art historian.
The creation of your wonderful collection of masterpieces is something you should be admired for. This is why I invited you to become friends. There is also another reason, more sentimental (and I hope you forgive me this): I saw that as yet you had no friends on LT...
Respectfully yours
