Thank you very much to the britchy one who nominated me for this fun challenge. I enjoy finding quotes and applying them to life, all my little daily reminders.
First there are rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
3. Nominate three bloggers each day to do the same.
Today’s quote is not what I had originally intended. I thought to put a Calvin and Hobbes quote because I really enjoyed the comic strip growing up and who can resist talking about rocket ship underpants. Instead this quote popped up in my memories today, something I had shared in 2010. I’m not even sure where I first found this but it’s from a play that admittedly I don’t recall seeing probably because it was written in 1888.
It just hit me when I reread it and all I could think was THIS.

It may seem more like pain sometimes when I’m learning something but it’s temporary because that knowledge stays with me and that knowing does give me pleasure.
So here are today’s nominations:
