Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I don’t usually respond to awards or challenges, save for the three regular challenges I participate in. However, every now and then, someone tags me on the right day and it sticks. Still, there is the issue that I don’t do well with rules, so you can never be sure if it’s better to be ignored or answered.
Last week, Marian Allen tagged me in a two-quote challenge, and I agreed to respond. I wasn’t really thinking. The rules are as follows:
The rules of the tag are very simple:
- Thank the Selector
- Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.
- Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘3.2.1 Quote Me!’
The topic set for me and my tagees is ‘Success’.
OK, let me see if I can get through this:
Thank you Marian! Thanks for thinking of me, and thanks for following my blog, liking stuff and leaving comments. Most of all, thanks for turning your keyboard over to Tipper on Saturdays, because I really enjoy his updates. Oh, and thanks for the occasional Steffie story.
Since part of the tagline of this blog is “hopes and dreams,” I think I’ll take my first quote from a man who was helping to manage the hopes and dreams of a nation during very difficult times:
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.“
— Winston Churchill
My second quote might only be loosely related to success, but it’s one of my favorite quotes by anybody, ever:
“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”
— Andy Warhol
I’m going to pass on the third rule. I’m OK with two out of three. If you would like to play along, consider yourself tagged.
The gallery is just a few reruns of what some critters around here consider success.
