The Three Day Quote Challenge – Day 3

Einstein

The rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.  – Thanks again Angela                            ( https://fuckms.ca )
  2. Share a post each day for three consecutive days (3 quotes total)
  3. Explain why you like the quote
  4. Nominate three bloggers to play along

Unlike the last two days, I couldn’t think of a quote to share, so I decided to troll through the internet. To save myself time, I decided to latch onto the first quote I saw that made be feel something, expecting to share something profound and uplifting. Well, I found something profound alright. It certainly struck a nerve, but before I share this with you, be advised what follows is more rant than rave:

So, if we lie to the government it’s a felony, but if they lie to us its politics     Bill Murray

This quote pretty much sums up my disgust with the current state of our local and national politics. Honesty and politics have never gone hand in hand, but the disconnect has been taken to new heights, and it doesn’t appear that anyone seems to care. Self-interest and greed has destroyed compromise and common sense. All of which leads me to another quote (okay, I’m cheating again – sue me).

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits Albert Einstein

I’d like to think that no matter which side of the aisle you fall on, you can recognize how broken we’ve become in terms of our ability to at least see and consider another point of view. I’m afraid that if we continue on the same path we’ve traveled over the last decade plus, the divide will become so wide it will take something cataclysmic to mend it. All of which will prove Einstein knew what he was talking about.

Today’s nominees include a friend and two fellow MS warriors.

Karyn is someone I’ve been following for a while but had the pleasure of meeting during our recent blogging soiree with Grace and Superman. Karyn writes about real stuff and is as down to earth as you can get. Check her out when you can ( https://karynsdomain.wordpress.com/ )

Hannah ( https://mymultiplesclerosisandme.wordpress.com/ ) and Ashlie      ( https://crawlingthroughmy20s.wordpress.com ) both suffer from MS and share their trials and tribulations. What I find interesting about their work, besides their writing, is that they are both in their twenties. They write from a completely different perspective than I do, which is both refreshing and sad. Refreshing in the sense that they are brave to share their experiences living with this beast at such a tender age, and sad that they have to deal with this so early in their lives.

This ends my three day homework assignment. Hope I got a passing grade.

  1. Good job, brother! Now we’ve got government lying to other government, and all of us cheering for the victory of one or the other. All the while, we’re the ones really hurt by it.

    And I’m the least obsessive compulsive guy, ever, but I will do my quotes! 🤣
