Wordplay Challenge 17: In Other('s) Words

Sometimes it takes another's words to get your own words flowing. Quotations always make for easy journaling "substitutes" on layouts. However, remember that while quotations may serve as a stand-in for your sentiments, they cannot replace your own voice.

This week's challenge is to use a quote as a springboard for your own journaling.

For instance, consider the following:

"Life is the flower to which love is the honey." -- Victor Hugo

While this eloquent analogy is beautiful on its own, it also invites you to reflect on the "honey" in your life, and capture the sweetness of a special relationship.

So this week, take that quote a step further. Put it in context. Elaborate.
