I’ve been nominated by Mia Grizzle who blogs at The Grizzle Grist Mill for the 3 Quotes, 3 Days Challenge. Thank you very much Mia. I enjoy Mia’s writing and her variety of posts. Stop by and check out her site. The Challenge sounds like fun, and a great way to contribute to the WordPress Community. The Challenge: Post three quotes and nominate three people a day to the challenge, for three days.

Since my high school days in the Rebellious 60s, I’ve enjoyed the works of Henry David Thoreau. I can’t say I’ve ever lived as simply as he did at Walden’s Pond, nevertheless, his works left their indelible mark.

Here’s three of many things he said/wrote that I love:

How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.

I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

And the nominees for Day One are:

Sam
Bird
DinamicDynasty

Like Mia at The Grizzle Grist Mill, hese writers/bloggers write from their hearts, sharing with us there lives and how they see the world. I hope you’ll find their work a joy to read.

Let me leave you the rules of the challenge:

Three quotes for three days.
Three nominees each day (no repetition).
Thank the person who nominated you.
Inform the nominees.

Thank you to Mia for nominating me for this challenge.
