Three-Day Quote Challenge – Day Two

neil-young-free-archivesWelcome to Day Two 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 have opted to choose lyrics from songs that have been particularly meaningful to me. My second quote comes from a song written by a fellow Canadian; an absolute genius poet and musician: Neil Young (Old Man).

“It doesn’t mean that much to me,

to mean that much to you.”

I love this quote because it represents everything I wish I could be. I have been a people-pleaser my entire life, and these words have always resonated deeply with me. The older I get, the less I seem to need to please those around me, but it has nonetheless been a lifelong habit and therefore extremely hard to break. I am always in awe of the people who speak their truth and truly do not care what people think of them. I hope, before I die, that I will have arrived even closer to that reality.

I am nominating three bloggers who never seem afraid to say what’s on their mind. All three have me laughing almost every time I read their blogs but it is their honesty that keeps me coming back. As I said previously, this is supposed to be fun – if it is not enjoyable for those I have nominated, then by all means, feel free to take a pass – no hard feelings… That said, I really enjoy these bloggers and sincerely hope you will check them out…

  1. (I see that she was just nominated for the Quote Challenge so she will surely not want to do another one but please – do check out her blog…)

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…

    1. Holy CRAP. I checked out ‘Human Highway’. Absolutely AWESOME. I was SO not ready for them back in the day – I had not yet embraced my weirdness and was WAY not cool enough for the likes of Devo but I LOVE this now. I had no idea Neil Young could play like that. Thanks SO much for pointing me in that direction: you made my DAY!!!

      1. Okay, you have definitely mistaken me for someone cool. I missed so much great stuff the first time around (too busy listening to the Carpenters and dancing to disco music…I KNOW…🙄). I only started discovering the GOOD stuff when my kids were listening to it. Had to look up the Ramones – another great band I missed the first time. Yup, I like them (now) too 😊
