For some reason, I’ve never been a big quotation person. I had the hardest time picking a senior quotation for our yearbook, and from what I can remember, I went with something cheesy and seriously overused. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown to appreciate a nice piece of poetry or a line from literature, mainly on days when I need something insightful or meaningful to pull me through.

These prints from Little Things Studio at Etsy combine beautiful patterns and designs with well-chosen quotations from well-known children’s books, literature and cultural figures. The yellow pattern above is so lovely, I would enjoy it on its own, but that little nugget of wisdom from Coco Chanel does add a special something. You can check out Little Things’ full collection of work right here for $20 each. I hope some of these can pick you up or give you a friendly nudge when you need them. xo, grace
