Three Day Quote Challenge : Day 3

Three simple quotes for 3 days. There are the ones we should try to live by. Simplicity, forgiveness and an appreciation for nature!

I have always found it odd that people who think passive aggressively ignoring a person is making a point to them. The only point it makes to anyone is your inability to articulate your point of view because deep down you know you can’t win. It’s better to assert yourself and tell the person you are moving on without them and why, rather than leave a lasting impression of cowardness on your part in a person’s mind by avoiding them.

“You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page. Writing comes from reading, and reading is the finest teacher of how to write.”
Annie Proulx

Three Day Quote Challenge: Day 3

Chirping with excitement like a little baby bird, today I successfully complete another one of the Three Day Quote Challenges. David, from Chape Personal Trainer, put me up to this little mischief!

Challenge rules:
  1. Post three consecutive days.
  2. You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3. Challenge three different bloggers per day.

 

230_full.jpgPeople think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master.two-quotes_318-10953.jpg

Three Day Quote Challenge: Day 2

It may seem strange that I jump at opportunities to post quotes that I love, but they give me the satisfaction of righteousness. I want to strive to be a better, well-rounded and wholesome person- which is hard to achieve in a callous diplomatic world.

But at least, I’m trying. And, David is helping me along by nominating me for the Three Day Quote Challenge. And, all three days, I will be posting about…. LOVE!

Challenge rules:
  1. Post three consecutive days.
  2. You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3. Challenge three different bloggers per day.

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”

― Robert Fulghum, True Love

 

I further nominate the following bloggers:

Three Day Quote Challenge: Diary Special!

Once upon a time, Chape Personal Trainer, nominated me for a Three Day Quote Challenge. I was very happy to have been challenged to do something I already loved so much! In my post, I admitted that I loved quotes so much that I have a diary for them. David then requested me to share that diary here on the blog.

David has been so wonderful and helpful that I don’t feel shy about sharing my diary. So, today, I will show that diary here!

Diary 1.jpg
It was something I started out with at least 10 years ago, and I have been writing in it ever since. It has definitely seen better days and good handwriting. In fact, I can honestly track the changes in my handwriting through it!

The quotes were general in the beginning and as my interest developed, I started focussing on certain themes- life, nature, Buddha, sacrifice, education and more. Then I even noted down important sayings, metaphors and proverbs. I also scribbled some smart-ass T-shirt quotes which made me laugh on days when I felt low. I have also found some cult phrases in my diary which were big at that time!

Three Day Quote Challenge: Nietzche Special

At the challenge given to me by David from Chape Personal Trainer,  I post these three quotes today. Be sure to check out his blog!

We feature a Friederich Nietzche special today!

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”


 

“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”


He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.


I nominate the following for this challenge!
