3Days, 3 Quotes -day 3

The poet T.S.Eliott died on this day, January 4th, 1965, aged 76. In his memory and in small celebration of his life and work, I bring this quote:

I enjoyed this challenge from Ann at GrubbsnCritters,  stretching myself a bit to find not only quotes (or ‘quotations’ perhaps?), but to find and edit images (from pixabay.com), overlaying the text … a small thing yes, but something I often avoid… and I reserve the right in the future to grab a wildcard nomination from one of my challenge posts here and start all over again 🙂

Hot Off the Press: The first respondent post from my recent nominations has been published, and it’s a great read as usual from DrKottoway

The rules are to post 3 quotes over 3 days and nominate 3 bloggers each time to carry on with the challenge.

Some people choose to share three quotes each day, but the usual / minimum is one each day so take your pick and enjoy (with no obligation!)

I nominate the following bloggers to take on this challenge – and recommend visiting their blogs via latest posts from the following links:

It seems such a long time since last February’s Blogging201 and Writing101(Poetry)- and wonderful to find so many classmates blogs still active and inspirational. One of the great things about doing these challenge posts is having a handy reminder link to hand, so maybe it won’t be so long next time but see you again soon 🙂 Happy New Year!

Below are three more quotes from Stephen Hawking, the first being the quote I originally saved to use for this challenge. However, today, I decided to choose a different quote (applied to the pic above), selected for tying nicely to my theme of my nominator’s post. I found  Stephen Hawking quotes at goodreads, the quotes research site recommended during November2015-Writing101.

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.”

“Quiet people have the loudest minds.”
Stephen Hawking is an exceptional thinker, an inspirational author and an amazing person. He will be reaching his seventy-fourth birthday on January 8th (born 1942) – having been diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 1963 aged twenty-one and given two years to live, his journey is an incredible one. Visit Stephen Hawking’s official website here. or read more about him on wiki.
