It is day two of my third go at this challenge. This time I was nominated by Irish Procrastinator.
The rules state:
1. Thank the person who nominated you – THANK YOU!
2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
3. Nominate three bloggers each day.
Today’s quote is actually one I only heard relatively recently. At the weekend, we drove down to the Munich region for a family event and on the way back we listened to part of the audiobook of M is for Magic, a short story collection by Neil Gaiman. The quote actually comes from the introduction, which I probably wouldn’t have read in a physical book but for some reason we listened to it.
If you know me even a little bit I don’t have to explain why those words immediately resonated with me.
I am breaking rule three and not nominating anyone since most people I would have chosen have already done this at least once. But if you would like to join in then please consider yourself nominated!
Yes, I do in fact know what “consecutive” means, but I forgot to schedule a post for yesterday then I was in the office all day and by the time I got home, ate, etc. I didn’t feel like writing one, so day two of this tag is a day late. Whatever, it’s not like anyone’s waiting to tell me off.
I was nominated by She from This Door is Alarmed. Thank you so much for thinking of me!
Here are the rules, of which I’ve already broken one and will be breaking another:
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post a quote for three consecutive days.
- Nominate three bloggers for each post.
For today’s quote, I decided to pick something from one of my favourite books – Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. There are many quotable lines in this book, but I decided to go with this one:
It can be helpful to remember that, for the most part, people are just people – they all have flaws, but they also have good qualities. Very few people are bad through and through, just as nobody is perfect.
I am not nominating anybody this time round, as everyone I would have picked has done it already, but if you would like to play (again) let me know and I’ll nominate you tomorrow.
