3 Days, 3 Quotes | day three

Make sure you check out day 1 and also day 2 of this challenge I’ve done two of my all-time favourite quotes. I was tagged to do this by Louise @ A Little Fool Reads.

The Rules

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote each day).
  3. Nominate 3 new bloggers each day.

The quote that I’ve chosen for my final day of this challenge is from a series that changed my life, and this quote really reminds me why I keep on writing.

Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable both of inflicting injury, and of remedying it.

– Albus Dumbledore, HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS by JK Rowling

he may be problematic as fuck, but man… dumbledore’s got style 

I’m quite mediocre at a lot of things. I would say that the only thing that I’m truly good at is writing.

For a world that shits on writers a lot, we sure read a lot, talk a lot, and our whole lives revolve around words. I’ve watched readers of my work laugh and cry, and I think that that’s unbelievably magical, powerful, and comforting to someone who feels lost most of the time.

And I’ve also chosen a second quote for today, because it basically has the same sentiment –

…words have the power to change us.

– CLOCKWORK PRINCESS by Cassandra Clare

Indeed, they do.

I nominate…

This time, I would like to nominate YOU, the person reading this. Over the past three days, I’ve really bared my soul through these quotes, and considering the sentiment I’ve written about above, I would love for you to do the same. There’s a catch, though – if you decide to do this challenge after seeing me do it, I would love it if you posted your blogs in the comments so I can read which quotes you chose! They don’t have to be as pretentious as mine are!

I hope you enjoyed reading!

3 Days, 3 Quotes | day two

Make sure you check out day 1 of this challenge – I did one of my new favourite quotes from Eliza and her Monsters! I was tagged to do this by Louise @ A Little Fool Reads.

The Rules

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote each day).
  3. Nominate 3 new bloggers each day.

The quote I’m doing for this day isn’t a bookish post, but it’s been a quote that has got me through the last few months, so here it is…

Every step you take forward is another step you never have to take again.

– LEAST OF ALL YOUNG CAROLINE by Frank Turner

This is a line from a song from Frank’s album ‘Positive Songs for Negative People’, and it’s a line that’s carried me through the past few months (and even well before then, since the song itself came out in 2016!). I’ve been struggling with various issues, and honestly this line has been like a mantra that I’ve repeated over and over again in my head. I know it’s not bookish, but I really wanted to share it with you!

I nominate…

The final instalment of this tag will be posted tomorrow, so make sure to stay tuned for that! 🙂

Until then,

Three Days, Three Quotes: Tag Challenge [Day Three]

So the great and glorious Ellen from eveningreads tagged me to do this challenge, thank you! Ok so these are the rules:

Rules
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day). (I’m assuming these are from books!)
3. Nominate three new bloggers each day (oh this should be fun, if I can remember anyone XD)

Quote three (final quote *waaah*) is from Shooting an Elephant by George Orwell, which I’m currently reading:

When one reads any strongly individual piece of writing, one has the impression of seeing a face somewhere behind the page. It is not necessarily the face of the writer… What one sees is the face that the writer ought to have. 

– page 114

And because I’m feeling lazy today, I TAG ALL OF YOU LOVELY PEOPLE! Go forth and prosper.

My second quote comes from The One Dollar Horse by Lauren St John, which, although not to everyone’s taste, I love. I’m a horsey girl at heart, okay?

…and he whispered to the horse, “Trust no man in whose eyes you do not see yourself reflected as an equal.” 

– page 24, see I found it this time!

And for my three taggers to be tagged…

My first quote comes from a book I finished last week (I think?) called The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani:

If you truly love someone, when he is cut, you bleed.

I’m sorry, being a not-very-good-reader-person I lost the page number this was on…. but it’s a lovely quote anyway, isn’t it?

For my first three bloggers, I am tagging…
