3 Days, 3 Quotes: Day One

Thank you Laura Bruno Lilly for tagging me in the “3 days, 3 quotes” challenge. First, of course, you must read Laura’s blog and check out her beautiful website. (Hint: we bonded over our mutual love of goats. You will also find recipes, sweet stories, and gorgeous photos there.)

Now, to rise to the challenge, I need to post one favorite quote a day for 3 days, and tag 3 other bloggers. Today’s quote is in honor of my step-grandmother, who led a difficult life, challenged those who loved her, and passed away at age eighty-nine today.

I am relatively certain my step-grandmother never read Terry Pratchett – she wasn’t really given to silliness. But I do think this quote from Pratchett’s book “The Truth” sums up something she’d agree with wholeheartedly:

โ€œSometimes glass glitters more than diamonds because it has more to prove.โ€

And now, to tag the first of three other bloggers for the challenge:

Sonya Rhenย – another terrific author and blogger whose work you’ll love.

  1. Goat lovers unite!!!! It warms my heart to see it written we bonded over those precious and precarious creatures. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Really love the quote…seems related to the expression “hard as nails” though who knows why!
