Way back when, I was pretty deeply immersed in calligraphy.
If you are going to spend a lot of time and effort writing something beautifully, it was best to have the message be eloquent, important and brief.
So I started collecting quotations, adages and proverbs. And whole books of quotes, proverbs and advice.
Consequently, when I saw these primitive signs at Goudreault's farm, they went into the collection.
