my dad's favorite quote

when i discovered neither snow, my heart leapt. i knew just the person who'd appreciate the vintage stamps matched with the incredible penmanship by lovely mara. i sent my pops this card for valentine's day. mara customized it with his favorite quote, penned so elegantly.


"It's amazing how much you can get done, if you don't mind who gets the credit."
- General George C. Marshall

That's a wonderful quote. I haven't thought of it in years...and I mean years. I remember a high school teacher using it (but giving Harry Truman the credit) and I was very taken with it. I'm glad you brought it back to me today.

So gorgeous, I love to see that other people have obsessions with gorgeous papers and lettering like me. I only wish I was talented enough to create such pieces of beauty for myself

I, too, love this quote. But what if you do want some credit? That's my problem!
