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):
Staci at Stacilys
Y. Zheng at A Simple Life
C.S. Lewis. A huge part of my childhood, I had a phenomenal experience when studying The Chronicles of Narnia in college for a literature course focused on reading childhood fiction for its literary merit. It was a truly remarkable thing rereading and picking apart a book I once loved purely for entertainment, and being mind-blown by all the subtleties and lessons that readers of all ages could learn from.
As a result of this course, I found myself reading his other works and eventually stumbled across this quote. ❤
I grew up Catholic, but have since found myself more spiritual than religious. One of the things I have always struggled with is the concept of an afterlife, and stress over the age-old question of “what happens when we die?” I find this quote incredibly comforting. No one knows for sure what happens when we die, but believing that we all have a soul, we all ARE a soul, makes me feel that it will somehow all work out. 🙂
What does this quote mean to you? Do you agree with it? Scoff at it? Are you comforted by its message as I am?
