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?

Quote Challenge Tag: Day One

Once again, gretald at Writing Like Crazy has nominated me for a tag! The good news: It’s all about quotes, things that I love to use to knock my blog readers off their feet with awesomeness. The bad news: It involves lots of tagging of bloggers, and historically I have been terrible at finding other bloggers who haven’t been tagged already. It must be an introvert thing. 

First, rules. Always 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

And now for the quote. No, I won’t do writing quotes this week because I talk about writing all of the time. Now we get a break.

‘Nuff said. My grandmother gave me a copy of this quote on my graduation, and it’s been on my mirror ever since. (Yes, I still do the paper on the mirror. #itsawritersthing)

Now, for the other bloggers whom I will drag into this adventure.

What is your favorite quote? Why is it so significant to you?
