A lift for your soul.
Quotes for Life sparks hope, humor, joy, warmth, serenity, love—through curated quotes paired with natural world beauty.
An array of human sentiment springs from the loveliness of the natural world. Quotes for Life offers a brief diversion from mobile devices, computers, and televisions—to consider the richness of a more contemplative life.
Quotes for Life started with a series of visual quotation books by D’Bee, the pseudonym of award-winning magazine designer Deborah A. Lawrence. The idea for the Lessons Learned in Nature book series evolved from her extensive publishing experience and award-winning work combining quotes and images.
Late Blooms, the first title in Lessons Learned in Nature, was inspired by a rose garden defying the advent of winter: “I was lighting a candle for my mother on a blustery, gray day, and as I left the church, I was struck by flashes of color in the Merrick Rose Garden. It was as if I walked into a garden of Georgia O’Keeffe paintings. I recorded them on my cell phone and forwarded them to my mom, an avid gardener. She died a few days later, never seeing the beautiful roses, so, the first book, was dedicated to her.”
Copies of Late Blooms have been used to benefit hospices, hospitals, polio eradication and other causes. In addition to The Nature Conservancy, Quotes for Life has contributed to AZA SAFE (saving animals from extinction), and is a gold sponsor of ZAG (Zoo & Aquarium Group).
Expanding on the Lessons Learned in Nature collection, Quotes for Life now offers an assortment of greeting cards, perpetual calendars, and patio pillows. All products are Made in USA.
