A to Z Challenge – Quotes

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary badge

Q is for Quotes

I had to think about this one for a while.  I could have gone with qi that nice little two letter word I love to play in Scrabble or Words With Friends.  I thought about one of my top 5 music artist Queen.  But I am going with Quotes and share of few that I like.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” – Eleanor Roosevelt

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King Jr

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius

“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana

I could like a whole lot more, I am often going to Brainyquote to find new ones.  And I do get a daily quote in my email.  There has been a lot said in the past we should pay attention to.  I will close with one of my favorites…

“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.” – Robin Williams


Follow my A to Z challenge:


Three Day Quote Challenge – Day 1

I have been nominated by Fandango over at This, That, And The Other for the three-day quote challenge. Thanks Fandango for this opportunity to share some of my favorite words!

The rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post a quote for three consecutive days – one quote per day.
3. Nominate three bloggers each day and let them know about it.

When faced with this challenge it wasn’t a quote that instantly came to mind but a few people. And I start with one of the bravest women I ever studied about in school, Helen Keller. She accomplished a lot locked in a dark silence all her life. So I went to one of my favorite sites, BrainyQuote.com, and found this…

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and success achieved.” – Helen Keller

I choose to believe, no matter how hard some things have been, that we learn valuable lessons from our past experiences.  The one thing to remember is tomorrow will come and the hurt and pain won’t last forever.  One of the best analogies is learning to ride a bike… how many of you did it without a scape or scratch from a fall?  But you learned and now you can travel all over town should you choose to.

Now I must start combing through my list of inspiring people and quotes to find the next two I will use.

I dread this part and want you to know that in no way are you obligated to do this but I know there is potential for some interesting responses.  I nominate:
