3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 3

CALVIN & HOBBES
Famous Quotes

There are only 2 comics that I’m quite a big fan of. One is Asterix, the other is Calvin & Hobbes 😊. Used to spend a lot of time reading and re-reading the comics. I think my favorite was the Spaceman Spiff alter ego. Haha. And I just adored the relationship Calvin have with his stuffed tiger. Talk about surreal.

A little boy with a great imagination and a lot of big words. Here are some of his funny but memorable quotes:

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 2

RUMI
Famous Quotes…

I love reading Rumi whenever I manage to come across one of his collections. Personally I don’t have any of his books. I prefer to just pick it up at a bookstore and flip open a page to see if the random poem that pops up to me surprises me in any way. It often does.. So no I don’t know all of Rumi’s poems. But I like the ones that I’ve read so far.

For those of you who don’t know Rumi, he is a 13th century Persian and muslim poet. A philosopher, his writings are very spiritual and thus have a universal appeal. If you want to do a bit of soul searching, just grab a Rumi and he will give you hints 😊

These are some of his more famous quotes that I love:

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 1

DAVID BOWIE
Famous Quotes…

Admittedly David Bowie was an artist before my time/ generation. But I wish he wasn’t. I wish he was on top during my time as a teen. By the time I was old enough to know about his existence and music, he was already “slowing down” in the entertainment scene. But I still remembered Jareth the Goblin King from the Labyrinth and some other of his rare appearances on TV. I always found him to be riveting, magnetic and his whole persona astounding.

His death felt like someone shot a bullet in the artsy part of me. A part of me that I put aside because I was so caught up with work and responsibilities. Suddenly I felt a hole and it felt like a wake up call to show how important it is to just be you! So here are some of his best quotes that I hold close and feel should be shared by every individual to celebrate the free spirit that is David Bowie…

And one from one of my favorite songs. During my time it was The Wallflowers that sang Heroes. Imagine how shocked I was when I found out he was the original singer, only after he passed away. Which only makes the cut feels deeper.

Anyway, I’m so glad that I was able to do this challenge as a way to also pay tribute to David Bowie.
