3 Day Quote Challenge

Day One

Thank you to TravelBug for the nomination and opportunity to participate in the 3 Day Quote challenge.

Rules:

  1.  Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (one quote for each day).
  3. Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  4. Nominate three bloggers each day.

 

‘”Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where – ” said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.”‘  Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland – Lewis Carroll

This quote has been one of my favourites for many years. It speaks of how the adventure is not so much unplanned as not to react to spontaneity, interventions, and things beyond your power. For Alice it is also a hopeful answer, she will get somewhere, so long as she simply sets out. It is the intention of beginning that is important, not the presumed end. The insight is, we can’t see the end even if we were to plan it, because we can’t control it. So for me life has been a journey in a real sense, intentionally setting out, but not presuming too much about where it all might end.

I nominate:

Englepip’s World

Flowers and Breezes

Dark Anki
