Love stories about old houses and family secrets.

As we move toward the beginning of spring (yay!), we are reminded that there are an endless number of ways for us all to grow and bloom. With that in mind, my Quote of the Month for March is this beautiful thought from ground-breaking artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Wishing you a season of hope, growth and fun! ❤️

“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.” ~ Jean-Michel Basquiat

    Denis Waitley has been given credit for this quote. Who is right?

      Hi MaeMargaret! That is a very good question. Quotes on the internet can difficult to correctly attribute. It’s frustrating, isn’t it? Until now I have always seen this one attributed to Basquiat. I will have to do further research to trace the actual originator of this quote. Could be it was neither of them. When I find out, I will post it here on this thread and as a new blog post. Thank you for your comment! You’ve really got me thinking.
