Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge – Day 3

Day 3

Yes I know – I probably should have posted this on Monday after days 1 and 2, but I didn’t. Too busy. So here it is instead. 😊

And the Quote:

Completely different from my other two quotes, but I love Edgar Allen Poe and this quote really resonates with me. It describes me to a tee, and is also the reason why I am resolutely single.

Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge – Day 2

Here are the Rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you.

2 Post a quote for three consecutive days.

3 Nominate three bloggers for each post.

And the Quote:

Another of my favourite quotes about self-belief and creating your own happiness. I think this is definitely something worth thinking about. After all, what’s the point in wishing for a happy future if you aren’t enjoying life right now.

Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge – Day 1

Day 1

Thank you to my blogging friend, Earthwalking, for nominating me for the “Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge.” I would highly recommend checking out his blog as it really is gorgeous.

Here are the Rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you.

2 Post a quote for three consecutive days.

3 Nominate three bloggers for each post.

And the Quote:

I love this quote. I think it describes very simply yet perfectly what happiness is.

If you are familiar with my blog, you may have read snippets about my struggle with clinical depression in my younger years. Nowadays, I strongly believe that happiness is all about positive thinking, and having the ability to believe that you are happy, no matter what your situation.

Easier said than done, I know, but your frame of mind does play a massive part in your mood patterns.

20 Best Snow Quotes

We all love snow, don’t we? Of course we do – if we don’t have to go out in it.

Back in 2010, we had the heaviest snowfall since… well, the last really snowy time, and Britain ground to a standstill. We knew it was coming, but we didn’t prepare for it. People were stranded, abandoned vehicles lined the blocked roads, and I actually got to take a snow day. Yes, that’s right – a snow day!!

Anyway, snow is forecast for later this week so I thought I would compile some of my favourite quotes about that lovely, white, cold stuff, which I will use on my Facebook page A Little Bit Of What You Like along with some beautiful snowy scenes swiped from Pinterest.

  1. “The very fact of snow is an amazement.” — Roger Ebert
  2. “The snow doesn’t give a soft white damn whom it touches.” — E. E. Cummings
  3. “A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.” — Carl Reiner
  4. “When snow falls, nature listens.” — Antoinette van Kleef
  5. “A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky – unbidden – and seems like a thing of wonder.” — Susan Orlean
  6. “There’s just something beautiful about walking in snow that nobody else has walked on. It makes you believe you’re special.” — Carol Rifka Brunt
  7. “Snowflakes are kisses from heaven.” — Unknown
  8. “Be like snow – cold, but beautiful.” — Lana Del Rey
  9. “With every falling flake, a unique spark of interest falls from heaven.” — P. Miller
  10. “The snow did not even whisper its way to earth, but seemed to salt the night with silence.” — Dean Koontz
  11. “There’s one good thing about snow, it makes your lawn look as nice as your neighbours.” — Clyde Moore
  12. “The Eskimos had 52 names for snow because it was important to them: there ought to be as many for love.” — Margaret Atwood
  13. “What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” — John Steinbeck
  14. “Even in winter an isolated patch of snow has a special quality.” — Andy Goldsworthy
  15. “The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?” — J. B. Priestley
  16. “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” — Lewis Carroll
  17. “The snow began to fall again, drifting against the windows, politely begging entrance and the falling with disappointment to the ground.” — Jamie McGuire
  18. “Snow flurries began to fall and they swirled around peoples legs like house cats. It was magical, this snow globe world.” — Sarah Addison Allen
  19. “Snow falling soundlessly in the middle of the night will always fill my heart with sweet clarity.” — Novala Takemoto
  20. “January brings the snow, makes our feet and fingers glow.” — Sara Coleridge
