Quotes challenge

I have been nominated for a three quotation challenge by Syd7t5 so I thank them for that. Please pop over to their blog and have a read of their fantastic work. I’m post all three at once and making a decision about them was really hard.

I nominate the following bloggers, all special people with words

The guidelines:
1.) Either once a day for three days, post a quotation, or post all 3 quotations at one time. It is your choice.
2.) Nominate and notify three other bloggers of the challenge.
3.) Thank the blogger who nominated you.
The nominees are under no obligation to complete this challenge, but it would be fun if you do.

Quote 1

“In order to know virtue, we must first acquaint ourselves with vice.”

Marquis de Sade

Quote 2

“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?”

Friedrich Nietzsche

Quote 3

“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

Winston Churchill

  1. Hi there! I’m not certain if the people here that I follow would appreciate being tagged, but I can certainly give you three quotes!
    1. “There is no fear in love.” Believe it or not, this is from the Bible – 1st John 4:8b, in fact.
    2. “You can love more than one person with all of your heart because the heart is infinite.” Said by our Sara Jane one night in 2001 when we were rolling with a third.
    3. “If a dream is a reminiscence, it is the reminiscence of a state preceding life, a state of ‘dead’ life, a kind of mourning before happiness.” Gaston Bachelard, “L’Air et les songes,” pp. 119 – 120. (The title means something like, ‘Songs of the Air.’)
