Three-Day Quote Challenge – Day One


Welcome to Day One of my Quote Challenge! I want to sincerely thank the prolific, creative and talented Lizardin Bain (Unoriginal Love Notes) for nominating me for the quote challenge. Please do check out her blog!!


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

I actually love quotes – one of my favourite bosses gave me free reign over an entire bulletin board in an adult education centre for several years and I used to fill it with inspirational quotes – which I updated weekly – for our adult students. Many were second-language students and I often saw them looking up the meaning of some of the words, which made me very happy. It didn’t matter to me whether they agreed with my choices, but I do hope some of the quotes prompted conversation.

I have noticed that many people who take on this challenge do so by theme, so I have opted to choose lyrics from songs that have been particularly meaningful to me.

My first quote is from a song by Hozier (Take Me to Church):

“That’s a fine-looking high horse.”

This quote took my breath away the very first time I heard it. And I love the song; love its message of acceptance no matter what your sexual orientation. It leaves me in awe how, in just a few words, Hozier so sardonically puts in their place all those who are judgemental out of a feeling of superiority and control. It is the sort of phrase I would like to be able to say at the right moment, but alas, my ‘right moment’ always comes and goes: I rarely think of the perfect thing to say until I am all alone, at 3:00 in the morning…

Please check out the bloggers I am nominating. I know that some really like doing these challenges and some do not, so please – to those I am nominating, feel absolutely no pressure should you want to decline. That said, I really enjoy these writers and hope you will check them out…

I write what I feel. And I rarely know exactly what I feel until I write. I have lived long enough to have known many joys and many sorrows. I have made many mistakes; I have forgiven myself for a few… I have learned that there are lessons in every step of this journey, if we only take the time to pay attention… I hope you will feel free to pick and choose the stories that resonate for you…
