Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge – Day 3

It’s the third and final day of this quotes challenge. Those who have been paying attention will know I was nominated by Irish Procrastinator. If you haven’t checked out her blog yet you really, really should.

The rules, for the unlikely event that you’ve forgotten them since yesterday:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).

3. Nominate three bloggers each day.

For today’s quote, I am going back to books. After all, I am primarily a reader. This time it’s from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

Life takes us to unexpected places sometimes. The future is never set in stone, remember that.

I like the idea that a decision I make now could set me on an entirely different path, to a different future than that I had been heading towards. Far better than thinking no amount of time, effort or money can stop me from ending up exactly where destiny had decreed I should be. I mean, what if destiny (or fate or the universe – whatever you want to call it) had planned for me to end up childless, destitute and alone? I would like to think that’s a fate I can avoid by making the right decisions.

Today I would like to nominate:




Please don’t feel you have to join in, but if you do I’m excited to see your quotes.

  1. That’s a really great quote, and so true. I’ve not heard of the author. I love historical fiction, but have not tried any magic. Is it too late to set myself off on a completely different path? Now there’s a thought…

    1. Oh, I’m sure it isn’t too late. Or perhaps you already have changed your path… after all, today was the future at some point. Perhaps you had originally been heading somewhere different to where you are now? Such deep thoughts for a holiday weekend 😉

  2. A lovely quote. It is both reassuring and frightening to know a decision we might have can change the course of our lives dramatically. Thank you for sharing!

      1. Absolutely. Makes living life a little scary but super exciting at the same time! Lovely quote. I like anything that makes get the old grey matter fumbling for answers! 😁😁😁

    1. Yes, interesting and kind of scary. I sometimes wonder where I would be if I had chosen differently at a certain point in my life. If I had studied primary teaching like I originally planned I doubt I would be living abroad now! On the other hand, I might have been married and a mother.
