3 Quote challenge Pt 2

download (18)

For some the concept of not being able to change is a very frightening one. The idea that our “flaws” can never be shaken is pretty much horrifying. But in my mind this quote means so much more than that. It means to me that the evolution of our personalities are such that we only grow. And in growing we learn and as we do so, we learn to love and accept ourselves and adapt as all creatures must in order to become the best we can be. A very comforting thought to a very confused teenager.

Thanks again to Jane over there at Making it Write, for inviting me to take part in this 3 quote challenge.

For the challenge, the rules are:
I – Post your favorite quotes or your own quotes for three (3) posts in a row.
II – Thank the person who nominated you.
III – Pass it on to three (3) other bloggers per quote, each time you post them.
IIIb – Or pass it to nine (9) bloggers if you choose to post all the quotes together, in the same post.

The bloggers I would like to challenge at this juncture are:

Joanne over there at Jhohadli.wordpress.com a very talented Antiguan Author

Kimolisa Mings, another very talented Antiguan Author,

and Spilling Ink, a literary group out of Guess where? Antigua.

Very excited to see what they all come up with.

  1. For me this is a topical quote. Lately, the subject of ‘nature versus nurture’ has been cropping up a lot, around me. While it’s clear that we are all affected by our invironments, each of us is born with our own set of unique tools. How we care for and use these tools depends on a combination of our nature and our mood, (at any given moment.) So it’s probably true to say that our intrinsic characters don’t change, but outside influences bring about knowledge and growth, and can make them appear to do so.
    I particularly like this quote. It’s given me a ‘eurika!’ moment.
    Should I move to Antigua?

  2. I’m beginning to see one has to think of their life as a flower. You may be certain that you’re just like one of your parents, for example, but as life continues to unfold, the flower exposes itself. The problem is, for some of us many attempts are aborted for lack of water and nutrients. Sometimes it takes a loooooong time for a mature blossom to appear. (Like 64 years!) I like this quote!
