"To be small and to stay small."

Michael of Orange Crate Art sent me this quote,

"To be small and to stay small."
It's the motto of a character in the 1909 novel Jakob von Gunten, by the German-speaking Swiss writer Robert Walser.
["Still Small Voice: The fiction of Robert Walser", New Yorker, 2007.]

The motto sounds to me like a guide to living a kind of expansive life.

I'm starting to gather girlette photos for a 2022 calendar.
I think this quote will be the title.
("Dolls Help" was the title of the 2021 girlettes calendar.)

That is a good quote and a perfect title! I also love that little outfit. I would wear that jacket if it was bigger, or I was smaller!
