People say the most interesting things don’t they? I just love quotes so last month when I was challenged to participate in the 3 days 3 quotes challenge from a blogger friend, masgautsen over at The thoughts of life and me, I couldn’t wait to jump in. Yeah right, you might be thinking! Well here I am a month later. Quotes have been swimming around in my mind so I decided that today is the day to take the challenge.
Here are the three simple rules:
- Post 3 of your favorite quotes, 1 per day, for 3 consecutive days. The quotes can be from other people or may come straight from your heart.
- Nominate 3 bloggers to participate in the challenge.
- Don’t forget to thank the person who nominated you.
First, let me thank masgauten for this challenge. Ordinarily this might be something I would take a pass on but if you follow my blog you might have noticed that I actually enjoy these often witty and thought provoking one liners. I am certain it stems from my father who had a variety of quotes he used to keep us kids in line as well as inspire us to follow a straight path. In honor of him I will offer my first quote. This is something he often told us:
It all depends on where you sit how the picture looks
I just love that quote! It is a such a great reminder that we don’t all see the things in quite the same way. I have searched for the actual author of this marvelous quote but unable to confirm it. Possibly Dad cleaned it up a bit and took it from a line in the book by Raymond Chandler, The Long Goodbye. That would make sense as he was an avid reader. Regardless, it is a favorite of mine-in fact our entire family!
Let me say that will in no way be offended should you not choose to accept the challenge. Accept only if you would enjoy doing so. If anyone else would like to take the opportunity to take part, please feel free to jump in!
Looks good from here!
