Quote Challenge: Day Three

We come to the last day of this little adventure. As Shakespeare would say, “Goodnight! Parting is such sweet sorrow / That I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.” But of course that’s not The Quote.

A reminder of the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you (thank you heartily, gretald!)
  • Nominate 3 new bloggers everyday
  • Post a new quote everyday for 3 consecutive days

I needed a quote that packed a lot of punch, and I already use too many C.S. Lewis quotes, so I went straight to G.K. Chesterton. As always, he did not disappoint.

g-k-chesterton-quote-art-like-morality-consists-in-drawing-the-line

I’ll let that one speak for itself, sans exposition.

Now this is normally the place where I tag other bloggers, but unfortunately I don’t think I am acquainted with any other bloggers who haven’t already been tagged and who would be interested in such a tag. So… I’m tagging anyone who wants to take it! If you have a blog and like quotes, go ahead and take the Quote Challenge. Just remember to leave a comment so I can read about your favorite quotes.

Until next week, fare ye well!

Quote Challenge: Day Two

Ah, this is so late! I suppose that’s what I get for being sick on the weekend.

Anyway, welcome to the second day of the Quote Challenge! This is getting to be fun. Let’s get down to it. For those of you with short-term memory loss, here are the rules again. 😉

  • Thank the person who nominated you (thank you heartily, gretald!)
  • Nominate 3 new bloggers everyday
  • Post a new quote everyday for 3 consecutive days

The quote:

Liberty

Tocqueville knows what is what. I am aware that many disagree with him, specifically on the idea that morality needs faith. However, even though I can list a number of morally upright people who had no Christian faith, in every case their morality was built on Christian values which they accepted. It was a matter of having faith in something bigger than themselves. As for freedom… go watch a political debate for ten minutes, and you’ll see exactly what Tocqueville meant. And I’ll stop before this gets inflammatory.

And now to tag other bloggers.

Check back tomorrow for the final quote!

Do you agree with Tocqueville? Where do you think freedom has its foundation?
