Words to Live By

Hey guys! I recently read the book, Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. I loved it! I also got the book, 365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne’s Book of Precepts. I enjoyed that one as well!
Basically, precepts are, as the “fictional” Mr. Browne calls them, “words to live by.”

I collected some of the “words to live by,” pairing them with some pictures, and made them into this post. I hope you find these inspiring – I sure have! πŸ˜€
