Today is Day  E for  the April A to Z Challenge. There are hundreds – okay thousands!  taking part – amazing! Be sure to check out the website.

My theme is art quote cards by famous people..The cards are 4″ by 4 1/2″,usually  with a gelli print background, a used stamp of the person and a quote by them. It is an ongoing project.

E is Amelia Earhart – the amazing pilot who made history and then disappeared.

E is also for Dwight Eisenhower, the 34th president of the U.S.A.

From Wikipedia:

“Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower was the 34th President of the United States from 1953 until 1961. He was a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II and served as Supreme Commander”

There were several other quotes that impressed me, especially as he was a general and as they apply so much to the situation in our world today.

I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.

  1. Great E choices, Bev! I’ve been fascinated by Amelia Earhart since I was a little girl, and with Eisenhower since my teens. His thoughts on war are extremely relevant.

    And, as always, the cards are gorgeous and suit the quotes and the subjects perfectly.

  2. I love the art cards! I never heard of them before, but they look like they’d be fun to make! Also, great choices for the letter E. Those quotes by Eisenhower are powerful and yes, definitely relevant today. Those would be great writing prompt quotes for my English students. Can’t wait to see more of your choices throughout the challenge!
