3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge, Day 3

Alas, Day 3 of the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge has arrived. I´m just going to go ahead and thank TheWebWeavers again ( because I´m not sure if once was enough or if I should be doing this for three days in a row….).

I think I´m going to leave this challenge with a bomb of a quote because every exit needs to be a flashy one, right?

But before we end this challenging challenge I´m gonna leave you with a useless fun fact: I was never the type of girl/woman who wrote down quotes or made sticky notes of brilliant words / phrases / quotes because I was never impressed or emotionally touched so deeply that I felt the need to do so. I´m still not that type of person. BUT…. on the flip side…. when I see a quote that does touch me in some way I´ll remember it. I only have a hand full of quotes that inspire me, push me forward, or quotes that are so darn meaningful that they simply cannot be ignored.

Fun fact over.

“Nowadays, people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”

_ Oscar Wilde

 

Taken from one of my favorite classic reads, `The Picture Of Dorian Gray`. This book might be the only classic I love, as it´s powerful and deep. And the quote… well, I use it at family parties. A nice way to clear the way that leads to the kitchen. 🙂

 

Tagging:

3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge, Day 2

Huhuu! It´s me again. Welcome to the second day of my 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge.

And as yesterday, I´d like to give my hugging thanks to The Web Weavers for tagging me to take part in this little bundle of fun.

Nothing´s changed. I still feel awkward doing this but here I am…. willing to give it my best shot. Let´s do this  * cracking knuckles *


 

`Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.` 

_ Friedrich Nietzsche

The reason I picked this quote is because it suits me. Plus, I have it tattooed below my shoulder-blade. It´s meaningful for me.

Figuratively it means that people don´t understand a person´s motivations, their actions or their choices. They judge a person for their behavior and think of them to be irrational ( among many other things ). And what happens when people don´t understand? They often reject the things they can´t comprehend.

Not that I´ve been rejected. But I have been told that my behavior is abrasive, that I can´t see beyond my own point of view. I´ve been called arrogant and many other questionable things online and offline by people who refused to have a listen to the music I danced to. But that´s fine. I don´t expect understanding. My confidence is mistaken for arrogance. My abrasive side is just me being straight forward. Take it or leave it, you know? I´m misunderstood on a daily basis but that´s fine. I´m alive. I´ll continue to live. Just as all the people will survive even  though they can´t hear the awesome stuff I´m listening to.


I´m tagging….

 

Until tomorrow, my dear bookish Padawans ❤ Mucho love.

3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge Day 1

Many many moons ago I was tagged by the lovely The WebWeavers to do the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge.

This isn´t anything I´m particularly good at but I´ll still give it a go and see where this takes me ( either to Quote Heaven or jail…. Who knows )

Ready? I´m not. * takes a large sip of coke *

 

“It is I who mediates the elements, bringing each into agreement…I make what is moist dry again, and what is dry I make moist. I make what is hard soft again, and harden that which is soft. As I am the end, so my lover is the beginning. I encompass the whole work of creation, and all knowledge is hidden in me…Who will dare to separate me from my love? No one, for our love is as strong as death.”

― Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches

 

Powerful. Meaningful. And taken from my favorite book / series. God, I love this story.


 

I nominate….

 

Have fun, ladies!

Get ready for Day 2 tomorrow. ❤
