3.2.1….Tomorrow Quote Me

Another fun quote challenge nominated by the creative Rory. I’m feeling drained already here at work and this is a nice break (and also makes me looks busy) so thank you, Rory, for this opportunity. My two quotes are ones that my father would tell me or anyone who was listening when he was in a few bottles. I think this is a great exercise in learning what other people value in quotes to share them.

Topic: Tomorrow

Tomorrow hopes we have learned something from yesterday.
~John Wayne

“Be happy while you’re living, for you’re a long time deid”
~Old Scots proverb

My nominees are:

No pressure and have fun!

3..2..1..and Quote me

I have been charged with blogging about my favorite quotes (eek LOVING THIS!). It has been a bum day and I haven’t gotten to work a damn bit on my story. It’s going to be a late night but I think I’m looking forward to having a quiet house (maybe some ID TV playing in the background), my paints and doodles.

I was first nominated by an awesome fellow blogging buddy to complete this short challenge. In doing so I wandered over to the challenge’s creator’s page. His clever take on everyday situations or items is a home of honest imagination. The wit, humor, and honesty is a breath of fresh air. It’s one blog that I can smile at while reading. So, thank you Rory (reminds me of a character in a movie) over at A Guy Called Bloke for giving me another opportunity to participate but also a reprieve from my day job. Here it goes:

Rules: 3.2.1 Quote Me!

  • Thank the Selector
  • Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.
  • Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘3.2.1 Quote Me!

Topic: “The Power of One”

When truth and fairness are different from what is law, better it is to follow truth and fairness.~Bandamanna Saga, c.6

It is not the violence that sets men apart, all right, it is the distance that he is prepared to go.~ Lawless

There has been a lot that I have had to do on my own and I felt this was a great topic for my quotes. The first of Norse descent. Basically, there are times when you need to do what is right and fair despite the laws. The second from one of my all-time favorite movies. It’s one of those take as you will quote but to me, it’s saying anyone can react with violence but in the long run that may not be the answer. In truth, the two quotes really compliment each other. Both, the individual holds the ultimate decision.

Quote Challenge Day 1: Havamal Inspiration

I think this is a great challenge and a way for people to share a quote that is inspiring to them in some way that’s special and dear to them. It’s like a story into the encouragement for one’s soul. Thank you Grateful Single Mom for nominating me to participate in this challenge. The writing and wit of her blog will definitely give you an encouraging boost and a little humor along the way. So, stop over and see her quote choices that inspire her as well. It’s a great mental break from the A to Z challenge (and getting over being sick).

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  3. Share why this quote appeals so much to you
  4. Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

Never walk away from home
ahead of your axe and sword.
You can’t feel a battle
in your bones
or foresee a fight.

Hávámal, The Sayings Of Odin

No, I don’t have a sword or an axe that I carry around. But when I do leave home, I’m aware and cautious at all times because of past experiences. This helps as a reminder to trust my instincts. Most of the time they aren’t ever wrong. This could be interrupting a man harassing a young woman at her first job. The poor young girl just landed her first after school job at the mall. I passed once and I seen a pleading look of, ‘Help me,’ on her face. It was one that I have worn many times. I didn’t need to know about the hydro whatever that she was supposed to sell but I stopped and her this man’s pickup lines. He was twice her age. I interrupted and stood between him and her. The protective mother instinct kicked in. Before I knew it, this man decided that he was going to confront me. My husband stepped, security was called and I made sure the guards walked her to her car after her shift.

So please, remember to trust your instincts in all things. I don’t mean just for safety but in all things.


The three bloggers I nominate are (Y’all have fun with this):

  1. Tales From the Mind of Kristian
  2. The Ministry of Shrawley Walks
  3. Revenge of Eve
