3 Quote Challenge

Thank you Shilpa Garg and Ushaji for tagging me for the 3 Quote Challenge.  This challenge is meant to be over 3 days but I cheat a little and include them all in one post.

My first quote:
"Always look your best, you never know who you might meet"

These were words that jumped out at me while I was reading a work colleagues blog. These were words her late mother would say to her. Coincidentally just a day before I read that I was thinking I needed to spruce up a bit. Also I had been meaning to read her blog since the start of the year but never got around to it until that day when I had a sudden urge to read. Her mom I am sure was reaching out to me. Thank you for your words of wisdom. I truly needed to hear that.

My second quote:
"Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment" ~ Lau Tzu

I wish I had known this quote many years ago, for I learned the hard way to respond intelligently. More often than not we are so reactive and respond in the same way - unintelligently. And invariably that keeps the issue going.

My third and final quote, one of my own:
"Go with the flow, be Zen, and let it go"

Have a dream, set an intention but then let the Universe bring it to you, don't force the flow, go with it. Let go of things that no longer serve you to make way for that which does and new things. And most of all be at peace with life, stay calm.

Looks like all the bloggers I know have already done the challenge. In case you haven't take it that you are tagged and join in.

For the 3-Day Quote Challenge which I have condensed into one day:

  • Post one of your favorite quotes (different quote on each day) on three consecutive days. The quote can be from your favorite book, author, or your own.
  • Nominate 3 bloggers to challenge them.
  • Thank the blogger, who nominated you.

  1. Thought provoking quotes they all are, Suzy. I especially loved the last one. :)

  2. Such inspiring quotes you have chosen. My father believes in the first quote and I have learnt it from him. When you are dressed well or look good, it gives you that boost of confidence too. Oh, like you, wish I had learnt the second one a bit earlier too! But then we learn and learn...
    Let go is my fav mantra. It is so very much needed for your own sanity and well being. Thanks for taking up this challenge, Suzy :)

  3. My sis taught me to always look good but I will never look as good as she does! I just got tagged into this quote challenge as well -- what fun to see what has inspired others.

  4. Love all the three quotes Suzy. It's an intelligent way of looking at life when lemon is thrown at us:)


  5. "Go with the flow, be Zen, and let it go" the last one is truly meaningful. It so happened, that i forced onto something, may be i had disturbed the flow as u narrated, and that which i craved was taken away from me. May be it did not come to be as natural as it should have been. Maybe the universe din't conspire.
    But am still waiting for it to happen, now through the force of the nature. May god Show the path.

  6. I loved the quotes, especially the third one. :)

  7. Suzy, three great choices! And words to live by!
    I've been tagged for the quote challenge and I think I'll follow your lead by doing it all in one go!

  8. Suzy, lovely choices.

    You signed up for the Cherished blogfest, but I see no post– would you still be participating? If not, please let me know on atozstories at gmail dot com, and we can remove your blog from the list.

    1. Thanks Damyanti. My post is up now, apologies for posting so late.

  9. "Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment" - We need this ... our society needs this... Absolutely loved this quote and I am glad I get to read it here :) Lit the inner bulb :)
