The 3 Day Quote Challenge

I have recently been nominated by three lovely blog friends for “The 3 Day Quote Challenge.”

Thank you to:

Shannon at

Annika at

Bella at

I love quotations, and I have a number of favourites. However, I will cheat a little on the challenge and combine three days into one!

Caring for Mother Earth

The first quote is Native American in origin:

janice & darrenare having a baby boy!please join us for a shower (1)

I am passionate about organic gardening, and caring for Mother Earth. We have such a lot of work to do, if we are to preserve our planet for future generations…

Walk A Mile in His Moccasins

The following quote is often considered Native American, but actually originates from a poem by Mary T. Lathrap in 1895.

janice & darrenare having a baby boy!please join us for a shower (2)

I have used this quote on a number of occasions, when feeling misunderstood.

Life Lessons on the Importance of Slow

I have included quotations at the beginning of each chapter in my memoir Watching the Daisies

One of my favourites is:

janice & darrenare having a baby boy!please join us for a shower

I will leave this challenge open to anyone who would like to participate.

  1. Hi Brigid,
    How timely. I often get inspiring quotes from various websites and post them to me e mail address. I felt As though my inbox was becoming inundated, hence feeling overwhelmed. I wanted to ‘get them out there’ into my muse book & was just about to do so when I received your posting.
    Here are my three quotes:-
    ‘You can’t tame the spirit of someone who has magic in their veins.’
    Robert Graves

    ‘I think everything in life is art. What you do, how you dress, the way you love someone and how you talk. Your smile and personality, what you believe in and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea, how you decorate your home or party. Your grocery list, the food you make. How your writing looks and the way you feel. Life is art.’
    Helena Bonham Carter

    ‘When words become unclear I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate I shall be content with silence.’
    Amstel Adams

  2. That is a new challenge for me and I enjoyed your choices. It made me think of a favorite of mine from Brene Brown that I have next to my desk.”If we want to live a wholehearted life, we have to become intentional about cultivating rest and play, and we must work to let go of exhaustion as a status symbol and productivity as a marker of self-worth.”

  3. You picked some wonderful quotes! I want to use the Mary T. Lathrap one next year when I teach To Kill A Mockingbird again. It would go so beautifully and I never even realized it was a poem. Thanks for the insight!

  4. Brigid, you’re popular!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒMany thanks for the mention!

    I love your take on the challenge and your post is wonderful. The quotes are all very special, a message to certain aspects of all our lives. I’ve always felt that money is really nothing … just paper (& plastic nowadays!). As young I grasped how money works – that it only inherent value is trust in it and after learning about 1920s Depression it shows it is absolutely nothing. Your second quote is great and speaks of the common trait of judging others … we really do have to know and feel the other’s journey first. Ahh…peace and wisdom resonates with Lao Tzu’s words – amazing how everything is accomplished without rush or flurry! I’ll carry this message with me today after a hectic day of sorting, charging around. Happy Weekend, my friend! ๐Ÿ˜ƒโค๏ธ

    • Thank you Annika. It was a lovely challenge๐Ÿ˜Š
      There are so many great quotes to choose from – it was hard to narrow it down to just three. In the end I felt these most resonated with my own learning.
      Happy weekend. ๐ŸŒผ
