I was nominated by the fantastic Millie Thom to participate in the Three Quotes Challenge. A remarkable and eclectic author and blogger, I have truly enjoyed our conversations and love reading her work. It is a huge honor to be nominated by a fellow writer who I admire so much both personally and professionally! 🙂
These are the challenge rules:
- Post one quotation a day for three days (they can be from other sources or one of your own).
- Nominate 3 other bloggers to participate per post.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you.
There isn’t any particular theme I have to adhere to, so I’m going to go with some of my favorite quotes, with a brief description/blurb detailing why that particular piece means so much to me.
I am be nominating the following bloggers to participate as well (if they opt to do so):
Jessica at Lavender and Faith
Sabina at Victim to Charm
Kaitlin at Kaitlin Throgmorton
Easily one of my favorite quotes of all time (I use it as my blog tagline!) this wonderful phrase from Benjamin Franklin strikes a deep chord with me. Growing up, one of my greatest fears was being forgotten, not being remembered. When I studied the works of Benjamin Franklin in a literature course in college, I fell in love with his writing and with so many of his philosophies on life and living.
This particular quote ties into that young fear of mine, coupling both my desire to do something meaningful with my life and my passion for writing. It reminds me to live in the present and to record those experiences through my words, to write everything that comes to mind as every thought, observation, and experience is precious in its own way.
I still want to do something impactful with my life. Whether that be complete and publish my novel (a lifelong goal), raise a child, make a difference in someone’s life, etc., I find that this quote is a daily reminder cherish every precious moment and to either do or write something fantastic that will (hopefully) leave a lasting impression.
