Mostly Wordless Monday – An Oscar Wilde Moon Quoto

Thanks again to Lori for giving me a wicked cool name to call this whole, putting other people’s words on my photos, quoto thing. *grin*

Oscar Wilde Moon Quoto. First, this is not a passive voice. Next, I am writing in an active voice. Therefore, my SEO will stop telling me how to write. Furthermore, these sentences are also shorter than twenty words. Rather, stop being so controlling. Especially since most of the sentences in this post are not mine. I will keep going while until you turn green. Oscar Wilde Moon Quoto. I can’t believe this is still orange. Finally, it has turned. Success! First, this is not a passive voice.

      Thank you, Cristy! I have the moon photo by itself already for sale, but I’ll definitely add the version with the quote to my Zazzle store. 🙂

    I love that quote! And that photograph. And the combination. LOVE!!

    I have to say I love the quote also. And the moon shot is perfect.

      I stumbled across the quote a while back, and knew I had to pair it with this photo (just hadn’t gotten around to it until now). Thanks, GC!

      The word Quoto makes me ridiculously happy. 😀

    What an interesting quote to ponder on! And “quoto” is great – good thinking, Lori!

    • June 14, 2017 at 5:10 pm

      Agreed, Stephanie – there’s much more to this quote than meets the eye. And “Quoto” is my new favorite word! 😀

    I had to read that quote a couple times before it hit me. I love it.

    • June 14, 2017 at 5:11 pm

      Same here – it’s one of the reasons I love it so much, Risa! 🙂

    Kind of chilling — his punishment or his privilege?

    • June 14, 2017 at 5:18 pm

      Exactly, Mel. There’s a real Cassandra the Oracle vibe to it (not my reference though – I found it somewhere when I researched the quote for this post). Love the multi-layered meaning to this.

  12. June 20, 2017 at 4:14 pm

    I’m honored to be mentioned here! I, too, thought of Cassandra when I read the quote. Brilliant quoto all the way around.

    Reminds me of Ghost Walk; although the chap walking the road by moonlight never saw the dawn…juts saying 😉 Great quote and lovely picture once again 🙂
