3-2-1 Quote Me

I have been challenged to complete a 3-2-1 Quote Me prompt, initiated by Rory from A Guy Called Bloke. Hello, Rory!

Rory’s rules for this challenge are:

  • Thank the person who tagged you — thank you, Fandango.
  • Post two quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day: lifestyle
  • Select three bloggers to take part in ‘3-2-1 Quote Me!’

…and the subject this time around is lifestyles.

Now, I have only been on here two seconds, so don’t really know any of you well enough to judge how you’ll respond to being “selected”, so will pass on that one this time. However if you’d like to take part, please just do so and pingback to this post.

That just leaves the quotes. The first one is easy. Sorry, no fancy graphics.

We refuse to be what you wanted us to be,
We are what we are, that’s the way it’s going to be.

Bob Marley, Babylon System

which I think is an excellent philosophy, no matter what lifestyle you happen to follow. My second quote, I’m not sure it is strictly lifestyle, but it could certainly be applied to our outlook on life:

“Hope is the fuel of progress and fear is the prison in which you put yourself”

Tony Benn

For my American friends, Tony Benn was a British politician (1925-2014). In addition to serving for a time in the top tier of our government, he was also an acclaimed diarist. I’m a big admirer of his, have read most of his work, and was lucky enough to hear and to meet him. As I take part in future challenges, I will doubtless be quoting him further.

Author: Stroke Survivor UK

Formerly, designed and developed IT systems for banks, but had a stroke in 2016, aged pre-50! I have returned to developing from home, but some of my time is also spent volunteering with the UK charities Age UK (www.ageuk.org.uk) and the [UK] Stroke Association (www.stroke.org.uk). I created this account with the alias "sca11y" but have since aligned it with the name of my blog.
