Quotes Challenge – Week 3

quotes Challenge
This is the final week of the Quotes Challenge wherein I listed 3 quotes and nominated three other bloggers to participate, with no obligations, of course.

 

“Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.”Bill Gates

I like the fact that Bill Gates turns this into a positive and not a negative. He almost welcomes criticism.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”

–Charles Darwin

An interesting quote because it is a cliché that it evolution theory is “survival of the fittest” – whereas Darwin himself point out that may not be the fittest, but the most RESPONSIVE or adaptable to change. Change is an inevitable part of our dynamic world.

Those who resist change are seldom happy.

And the final quotes in this challenge, I feel is a controversial one. Do you agree with the comedian and writer, Spike Milligan?

“We are destroying childhood.” – Spike Milligan

The final three nominees, (by coincidence, all happen to be men), for this challenge are:

Oosterman Treats Blog

Drake

Fife’s Photos and Art

 Please also note that I dislike the term, “Rules,” and so have also customized this aspect of the challenge.

Quotes Challenge Rules – Guidelines

The rules  guidelines are simple:

  • Post three different quotes on consecutive days/weeks. They can be from any source, or your own.  All three quotes can be of a similar theme or can all be completely different/unconnected
  • I am going to post three quotes on each of the three posts, one post per week, but that is my variation on this challenge
  • Nominate 3 people for the challenge.  [ In doing this, I just wish to highlight their blog and place no pressure nor expectation that they need to accept or pass on the challenge.
  • N.B. My variation is that I am going to incrementally nominate bloggers for this challenge, but do not feel bound to follow my example.]

Quotes Challenge – Week 2

quotes Challenge

After being nominated, I created a photo logo, seen above, for this challenge and anyone is welcome to use it, if they wish.

I have varied the challenge guidelines slightly, as I will post three quotes on each post – one post over each of three weeks. Please also note that I dislike the term, “Rules,” and so have also customized this aspect of the challenge. Thanks to Millie for the opportunity to showcase some fabulous quotes that I find inspirational.

 

Confucius is a fascinating character whose quotes have featured strongly for this challenge:

confucius

 

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
― Confucius

and more…..

“Give a bowl of rice to a man and you will feed him for a day. Teach him how to grow his own rice and you will save his life.”
― Confucius

Quotes Challenge – Week 1

Quotes Challenge – DAY 1

quotes Challenge

Millie Thom knows I adore quotes almost as much as proverbs, so she has nominated me to post on the Quotes Challenge. As the day after tomorrow is the Last Proverbial Thursday post for the year, I will post the Challenge across a few weeks, instead of days.

I have created a photo logo for this challenge that you may or may not wish to use, and I will also vary the guidelines slightly, as I have many quotes worthy I feel of sharing and so will post three quotes on each post. Please also note that I dislike the term, “Rules,” and so have also customized this aspect of the challenge.

Thanks to Millie for the opportunity to showcase some fabulous quotes that I find particularly inspirational.

Confucius is a fascinating character whose quotes will feature strongly for this challenge:

“Attack the evil that is within yourself, rather than attacking the evil that is in others.”
― Confucius

“Amateurs bring out qualities that professionals have forgotten…:-D

So the first nominee is:

Sally at Lens and Pens by Sally

Sally has a mobile photography blog but also incorporates some wonderful quotes and inspirational words in her photographic posts. In addition, she has a page on writings from past years.

If you haven’t yet discovered Sally, and her photographic/poetic skill, her blog is so worthy of a visit, that I know it will give you Something to Ponder About.
