The rules call for one quote per day. Ever the rebel, I’m ending the challenge with two. I will not choose between my favourite (dead) writers, and you can’t make me! Waaaahhhhh!

I was nominated for the Three Day Quote Challenge by Sita Rasa. Thanks so much!
Here are the actual “rules” for the quote challenge:
– Post one quote for three days (they may be your words or from another source)
– Nominate three bloggers each day to participate
– Thank the blogger who nominated you
I’m following numbers one and three. As for two…well, if you’d like to participate (and you should, because it is fun) feel free to nominate yourself.
