Thursday Thinking and Inking -

All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, April 15, 2010

Author Henry James was born on April 15, 1843.

Henry James’ most famous works included The Ambassadors, The American, The Bostonians, Daisy Miller, The Golden Bowl, The Portrait of a Lady, The Sacred Fount, The Tragic Muse, The Turn of the Screw, What Maisie Knew and The Wings of the Dove.

Here’s a thought-provoking (and perhaps controversial) quotation from Henry James, offering his own political commentary, for Thursday Thinking and Inking at Meme Express.

In museums and palaces
we are alternate
radicals and conservatives.
Henry James
(1843 – 1916)

Each Thursday, we offer feature a quotation as inspiration for that day’s prompt.

Of course, if this blogging prompt leaves you baffled, feel free to peruse the archives of the Meme Express and publish a blog post on an earlier prompt.
