The Quote Challenge – Day 3

Thanks to Kritika for nominating me for this challenge. I think you’ve come to know I love any and all awards and challenges! 🙂

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 quotes

1. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Then empty it all on life’s head and smash the glass jar in its face for good measure. – Mine

2. “I strove with none, for none was worth the strife
Nature I loved, and next to nature, art
I warmed both hands before the fire of life
It sinks, and I am ready to depart” – Walter Savage Landor (Dying Speech of an Old Philosopher)

3. Lord, give me the Scotch to accept the things I can’t change
The Coffee to change the things I can
And the taste-buds to tell the difference” – Multiple authors through the last decade, including me


I didn’t add any Hindi/Urdu quotes because most people here wouldn’t have understood them, there’s no dearth of those too, though. 🙂

Today’s nominations

1 Michael

2 Benji

3 Anmekari

I hope you enjoy this challenge. 🙂


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  3. Loved these, absolutely!

    Yes, even I thought of posting Hindu/urdu quotes, but as you said, not many would have understood and also because no translation would have matched its true essence.
