"That's the thing with handmade items. They still have the person's mark on them, and when you hold them, you feel less alone. This is why everyone who eats a Whopper leaves a little more depressed than they were when they came in. Nobody cooked that burger.”
― Aimee Bender

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like others are doing, I'm just going to say, Jump In, if you feel like participating. It's fun.

This may be bleak, but I'm sharing it anyway. because it's beautiful.  And every time I see it, it makes me think:  What can I do right now to help someone, somewhere in some small way?

ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?
it answered
everywhere
everywhere
everywhere.”

Three Day Quote Challenge - Day 2

Thanks for the nomination, Lillelara!

 

For day two, here's a very useful quote by Dorothy Parker. Useful as it has helped me to settle quite a number of disputes, because when people hear it, they usually pause to think about it and then laugh. Try it, it really works!

 

 

And again: Since I have already lost track of who has been nominated so far and who hasn't, I hereby nominate everybody who wants to participate.

 

Rules:

1.  Thank the blogger who nominated you.

 

2.  Publish a quote on 3 consecutive days on your blog. The quote can be one of your own, from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires.

 

3.  Nominate 3 more bloggers each day to carry on this endeavour.
