A-Z Blogging Challenge "K"

Hi. Happy to See You!
As a very young girl I lived with my paternal grandmother for three formative years. Being an enthusiastic teacher and lover of words,
she invariably had quotations written all over the house... literally. On the backs of cupboard doors, on calendars, napkins or wherever she happened to be.  With this in mind I am finding the authors, in alphabetical sequence, of many of her favorite quotations and am adding some of those that are special to my family as well.  Hope you enjoy!

Omar Khayyam (1048–1131;  was a Persian polymath: philosopher,mathematician, astronomer, and poet. He also wrote treatises on mechanics, geography, mineralogy,  music,climatology and  theology.




This quote is one of those that has really impacted my life. I first read it when my grandmother ( actually this one was from my Mother's mother) wrote it in a book of mine.I try to think of it before I open my mouth.

The moving finger writes and having writ moves on. And all your piety or wit can't lure it back  nor all your tears wash out a single word of it.
