A timeless quotation

Seven hooks on sacking  -  20 x 34cm

Here’s a great quote sent to me by a friend – it’s by Daniel Sutton who was an 18th century clinical scientist and innoculator. It could easily apply to still life paintings of everyday objects but in terms of research he wrote,

“Despise not trifles, though they small appear.  Sands rise to mountains, moments make the year and trifles life.  Your time to trifles give or you may die before you learn to live.”
