Turn your back on the crowd.

After living in Greenville for 11 months, Josh and I discovered that there are quotes on the sidewalk of Main Street!  We discovered them as we were headed back to the car one night and every single one of them was so good, I couldn't resist snapping a few to share with y'all.

"A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd." -James Crook

Now, I tried to google James Crook, 'cause he seems like my kind of guy.  At first, all I found were some mug shots and a website of a baby born in 2004.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume it's not the baby, and probably not the mug shot dude either.  But then I saw the quote and turns out he was a businessman in Canada in the 1700-1800s.

And that's your useless knowledge for the day.

Hey Where about? This is great art! There is so much history on the web about Crook. I grew up in his town here.
