🐟 Ponder 🐟

This week for one word Sunday, Debbie at Travel with Intent has chosen “Pond or Ponder”. I’ve found a few with quotes to go with my photos. Stay a while and ponder.

It is better to be a big fish in a small pond than a small fish in a mighty ocean

Our little fish pond, built in 2012. Different fish and some more plants, but still going strong. DH’s (Dear Hubby) hobby.

“I have found it a singular luxury to talk across the pond to a companion on the opposite side”
~ Henry David Thoreau ~

A Koi Pond in Sengan-En Gardens, Kagoshima, Japan

β€œRemain in the world, act in the world, do whatsoever is needful, and yet remain transcendental, aloof, detached, a lotus flower in the pond.” 
― Osho,Β The Secret of Secrets

It’s the smallest fish in the pond that has the most room to swim – or the smallest cow!


  1. As a young man, Peter Gabriel wrote, sitting by a pond contemplating his future….”And will I wait forever, beside this silent mirror, and fish for bitter minnows, amongst the weeds and slimy water”….there’s an offbeat β€œpond” quote for you!!
