It Is Not In The Stars To Hold Our Destiny - Quote 5x7 Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

This inspirational quote greeting card features the quote "It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves." When I first started working on the artwork to accompany this beautiful message, I thought the quote was from William Shakespeare. However, even before I was done with it research revealed that Shakespeare never wrote this exact quote. It appears someone may have adapted this quote from a line in his play Julius Caesar when Cassius says:

"The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings."

Whatever the origin of the quote in question, it has a genuine beauty to me. I think sometimes we spend too much time trying to put wise words in the mouths of famous people. A quote can be inspirational simply because it is. And I, for one, love that this quote suggests that we are in charge of our own fates.

Does the quote on this starry night greeting card hold special meaning for you as well?

Wonderful Memories

I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

Nostalgic Masterpiece

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!

My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
