Heart-stoppingly beautiful motivational posters

If I had R2000 or so to spare, I would immediately place an order for these whimsical and powerful wall posters, which come from right brain terrain. Ostensibly, I'd order them to decorate the walls of the bat-caves of my teenage sons, but the real truth is that I'd like to put some of them - especially the 'Focus' one, the 'Patience' one and, of course, the 'Peace' one - on the wall behind my PC monitor. What I love about these images is how crisply they express how I feel, using, in most cases, just a single word of text.

Isn't it amazing how an image can say everything? It's the same with music. I recently read a line in a book (I wish I could remember which one) that said something along the lines of: 'The music couldn't be described in words. That's why the composer wrote it: to express the inexpressible.'

The 'Integrity' poster (above) brings tears to my eyes, because it reminds me of my late father, who always maintained that integrity was everything, and who lived his life with such honour. Also, it puts in a nutshell what I'm trying to pass on to my own kids. Order them online here; around $15 each.
