3,2,1 Quote Me – Hope

A huge thanks to The Bag Lady blogger who writes @ https://rugby843.blog for the tag. Her strapline is:

The Secret of Change Is to Focus All of Your Energy, Not on Fighting the Old, But on Building the New
– Socrates

I shall attempt to do this topic justice. If I’ve understood correctly, this tag is the work of Rory @ https://aguycalledbloke.blog and I thank him too for his many efforts to engage all of us at WordPress.

Having thanked the blogger who tagged me, I can now turn my attention to my two quotes but firstly, let’s look at the definition of hope.

 A noun which expresses a feeling of expectation and a desire for particular things to happen.

So, here’s my two picks:-

One from Suzanne Collins an American television writer and best-selling author of The Hunger Games trilogy. I’ll be honest, I’ve never heard of Suzanne, read any of her books or seen the films of her books, but this kind of resonated with me.

Next, one from another writer, Samuel Johnson, often referred to as Dr. Johnson, a devout Anglican and committed Tory. I wonder what he’d have to say about the current state of the Tory party? Plenty, I warrant. Dr Johnson and I have something in common. Sadly, it’s not our use of the written word, we were both born in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

I now have to nominate three bloggers, which is trickier than it looks as many of you don’t like tags or awards, but here goes……………………




Hope (see what I did there) you have as much fun as I did with the tag.

The tag creator’s  A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip who says:

Everyone loves quotes right? So l figured to introduce a bit of light-hearted fun with this series. It’s simple. Every day l will pick a topic, post 2 quotes and nominate 3 bloggers, who in turn will post 2 quotes on that topic and nominate 3 bloggers of their own and let’s see how far we can take that topic for the day.

So here’s two quotes I really like about CELEBRATION:-

  1. Until further notice, celebrate everything.  (Anonymous)

I like the idea of celebrating everything, don’t you?

2. It’s another day and I’m alive and so are you. Isn’t that wonderful? (Wayne Gerard Trotman)

Life is wonderful isn’t it?


1. Thank the selector and do not forget to tag/create a “ping-back!” DONE

2. Post 2 quotes for the dedicated ‘Topic of the Day.’ DONE

3. Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘3.2.1 Quote Me!’ DONE

In turn I’m tagging DippyDottyGirl, Cheche Winnie and Rose Marie

Friends and fellow bloggers, let’s celebrate life and enjoy every single moment to the max. Life isn’t a dress rehearsal. Remember, we tend to regret what we haven’t done, not what we have done.
