The Three Day Quote Challenge (Condensed Version)

Bill and Ted with SocratesAnxious Mom has nominated me for the 3 Day Quote Challenge.  I am supposed to find quotes (hence the name of the challenge) and post one a day.  Since Zoe who nominated Anxious Mom who in turn nominated me, have both decided to post all three quotes on one day, I think I will follow suit.  I suppose the next question would be, “If Anxious Mom decided to fling herself off a bridge – would you do that too?” I would answer – “Of course. What a silly question!”

“Improve yourself by other men’s writings thus attaining effortlessly what they acquired through great difficulty.” – Socrates

I really like this one from Socrates – always think of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure when I see Socrates – because they say So-Crates.  It is a brilliant quote.  One can learn so much from reading and it should be a part of all our daily routines (and not just the People Magazine at the grocery check-out).

“I think I’ll move to Australia.” — Judith Viorst, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day   

 I love Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day – it is one of my favorite children’s books.  Being from Australia, and having moved to America when I was a child, I have a fondness in my heart for Australia and threaten to move back at least once a week.

“And so I think, there is millions of people, especially Moms and their kids that are beaten down like me and my Mom.  They probably have great energies, but it’s being mushed down by the bad people, with the bad auras around them.  They probably just don’t have enough of their own energies to see a way out of a really bad problem.  They just can’t get away.  Their auras just can’t breathe and work the way they’re supposed to work.”

–S.D. Gates, From Cornflakes to Eternity by S.D. Gates

I know this probably isn’t proper etiquette to use one of my own quotes, but what the heck.  It’s my blog, it’s my challenge response and so I guess I can do whatever I want. It’s one of my favorite quotes by Allie, a six year old girl that has found herself in the midst of a ghostly adventure.

My Challenge Nominees are:


Four camels and a coffee to go

If these brilliant bloggers choose to accept the challenge, that is wonderful (but I completely understand if they don’t and I won’t even threaten them with mobsters or monsters).
