Three Days, Three Quotes third time lucky, day 3

It is the third and final day of my third time doing this challenge. I was nominated by Irish Procrastinator.

The rules

1. Thank the person who nominated you – Danke, merci, gracias!

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

3. Nominate three bloggers each day.

Today’s quote has been attributed to various people, but it is thought to have originated from a Scottish author named Ian Maclaren, real name Rev. John Watson. I feel like I see versions of it everywhere, all the time, but it’s no less true for being ubiquitous.

Ian Mclaren quote

I know it’s hard to be nice to people who are rude or mean to you, but it’s always good to try and remember that we have no idea what those people are currently going through. And even people who appear happy and smiley may be anything but. Nobody has a perfect life and the absolute least we can do for each other is just be kind!

I am ignoring rule 3 and not nominating anybody, but if you would like to do this please feel free to consider yourself nominated!

  1. I very much like this quotation. So often, we forget about the fact other people are going through major life events, and we focus on ourselves. That grumpy old person who ignored a cheery “Bonjour” could have just received terrible news…Who knows? It’s just a case of being more generous to people, isn’t it?

    1. Exactly. It’s not nice when people are rude to you, but you have no way of knowing whether they’ve just had the worst news of their lives. And I’m sure I have not always been as nice as I should to people, if I’m tired or having a bad day, so who am I to judge?
