A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

The heart that loves is always young.

Adversity builds character.

Heroism consists of hanging on one  minute longer

Fall down seven times, get up eight.

Count not what is lost, but what is left.

A frog in a well does not know the great sea.

If you're not sure where you're going, you'll probably end up somewhere else.

Virtue is the only true nobility.

A bad worker always blames his tools.

An ounce of discretion is worth a pound of wit.

It is never too late to mend a broken friendship.

Everything comes to those who are patient.

You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind.

Quarrels end but words once spoken never die.

Too much of one thing is good for nothing.

Many hands make light work.

A cloth is not woven from a single thread.

Happiness comes from within.

Years know more than books.

Do not light a fire that you cannot yourself put out.

Love your neighbor, but do not pull down your fence.

It is not what you are called, but what you answer to that matters.

He who knows nothing, doubt nothing.

Say little, but say it well.

Better to do it than to wish it done.

He who digs a pit for others will fall into it himself.

Read 10,000 books - travel 10,000 miles.

Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

The wound of a blade will heal; the wound of a word will not.

A reed before the wind lives on while mighty oakes fall.

A friend is not known till he is lost.

A crisis is an opportunity riding on dangerous winds.

A friend to all is a friend to none.

A thorn defends the rose harming only those who would steal the blossom.

A full cup must be carried steadily.

Hunger is the best sauce.

A hasty person drinks his tea with a fork.

An old friend met in a far country is like rain after a drought.

He who uses people is himself used.

Don't build a new ship out of old wood.

Forget injuries but never forget kindnesses.

He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes< he who does not remains a fool forever.


Beth White has elevated the simple art of paper cutting to a whole new art form. She began cutting silhouettes in 1975 when her children were babies.

Her first cuttings were in their infancy, informed by the early french shadow art of silhouette. As her children grew, her silhouettes became more intricate with overlapping of patterns and forms. Her subject matter diversified from myth illustration and fantasy to intricate family portraits. Her art has taken her in many directions.

She has designed freelance advertisements, product promotions, logos and album covers and book covers for local regional and national art directors including IBM, CBS, RCA Polygram, Renaissance Greeting Cards, American Heritage Magazine, The United States Post Office, and numerous organizations and agencies throughout the United States.

She has promoted and marketed her own greeting card company that sold a personal line of greeting cards to museums and stores nationwide.

She has been honored with a Diamond Award for an embossed Swan Ball Invitation, a National Design Award Nomination for Kathy Mattea"s "Wind in the Willows' album design and a National Design Award Nomination for a Johnny Cash Christmas album. Her silhouettes are in private collections worldwide.
