3-Day Quote Challenge 3

Thank you to Michaela from The Path Less Travelled for nominating me for the challenge. 

I really wanted to post a quote about roses and love (my two favorite things!), but couldn’t find the right quote. I looked at dozens of rose and love quotes on Sunday, but nothing spoke to me. So I left it alone. My subconscious solved it for me. I woke up with a jolt in the early hours of Monday morning, it is the seed that with the sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose. And I thought that’s exactly what I was looking for, the Rose by Bette Midler! Isn’t it amazing how our soul can sometimes speak to us?

So here’s my choice for day 3-lucky last!

3-Day Quote Challenge

I was surprised yesterday by Michaela of The Path Less Travelled By with a 3-Day Quote Challenge. I haven’t done a challenge in a while so decided to do this one. Except that I will not be nominating others, if anyone would like to participate then please feel welcome to with a pingback here.

Now for the hard part, what quote to choose? There are so many insightful, wise, encouraging quotes in the world. So I decided to have some fun and say what I really want. (Give it to me!) I’m going with song lyrics, that can just as well double up for quotes.

Here goes! (Thanks once again to Michaela)

Quote #1

Australian National Anthem Verse 1

Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.
