1st Day – 1st Quote
“The problem was you had to keep choosing between one evil or another, and no matter what you chose, they sliced a little bit more off you, until there was nothing left. At the age of 25 most people were finished. A whole god-damned nation of assholes driving automobiles, eating, having babies, doing everything in the worst way possible, like voting for the presidential candidates who reminded them most of themselves. I had no interests. I had no interest in anything. I had no idea how I was going to escape. At least the others had some taste for life. They seemed to understand something that I didn’t understand. Maybe I was lacking. It was possible. I often felt inferior. I just wanted to get away from them. But there was no place to go.”
― Charles Bukowski
The above quote is in response to the “3 day quotes challenge” for which I was nominated by two absolutely lovely people; Kri and Steph, thank-you guys, I’m honored and humbled by the challenge, especially since reading and quotes collection is among my personal favourite things to do.
I won’t explain as to why I chose this quote but let’s just say, the quote comes very close to the most closed spaces we all hide within us.
Rules for the challenge:
1. Post 3 of your favourite quotes each per day for 3 recurrent days. The quotes can be of any other people or it may come straight from your own heart.
2. Nominate 3 or more bloggers with each post to challenge them.
3. Don’t forget to utter a thankful word to the person who nominated you.
Today’s nominations for the 3 day quote challenge are:
Again a huge THANK-YOU both of you for sharing this challenge with me and good-luck to all the nominations. I look forward to seeing your posts ❤
