For day two of the challenge, I nominate Sue Kelso Ryan, a blogger who is UK neighbour with Cotswold Views. As my blog is all about Crete and Greece it must seem that is all I care about, but I certainly love the English countryside, especially the Cotswolds. Sue starts her About Page with this quote:
‘Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits‘ by Satchel Paige, US baseball player, 1906 – 1982.
Now, back to the quote a day challenge, these are the rules:
1, Post 1 quote a day for 3 days (can be your own or from other sources).
2, Nominate a blogger to participate per post. Done, see above.
3, Thank the person who nominated you. My thank you goes to Ritu, of But I Smile Anyway; her blog is one of my favourites.
For my second quote I’ve looked to one of my favourite authors, Crete’s very own Nikos Kazantzakis although, wait for it… shock horror I didn’t like Zorba The Greek! I like the film music though!
My chosen quote is from the tomb of Nikos Kazantzakis where he rests in the city wall rather than an Orthodox graveyard as his work upset the church. The words Kazantzakis chose are:
“I hope for nothing. I fear nothing. I am free.”
(P.S. If anyone knows how to reformat the above text to match that at the top of the post, please share!)
