It’s a great day when I get tagged on quizzes or fun things like this!
A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip created the 3-2-1 Quote Me game with the following rules:
- Thank the Selector
- Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.
- Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘3.2.1 Quote Me!’
There is no deadline for participating in the game, which makes it perfect for everyone.
Today’s topic is truth.
Wow…that’s a humdinger of a topic, but thankfully I don’t have to really come up with anything for it, except to quote others.
The first quote I have comes from Dr. King (I have never really understood why so many people refuse to acknowledge his PhD. from Boston University). On a side note, it amazes me how many people do not give him credit for being something more than a Reverend. He never finished high school, that is true, but only because he started college at 15. He earned his undergraduate degree in sociology in 1948. He often said that it was his exposure to Thoreau in college that inspired him to pursue the path he did. He found a calling in his church and, in 1955, earned his PhD. in Theology. That is no simple feat – then or today.
Quote #1 – Dr. King
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
For my second quote, I could write about how some individuals in power wouldn’t know the truth if it came notarized and written in blood, but I won’t. I could write about how some people wouldn’t know the truth if God, himself, told them, but I won’t. And I could write about how some people have deluded themselves so much that they can’t even tell the truth from a lie when it comes from their own lips, but I won’t.
Instead, I will leave you with this quote from Winston Churchill:
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
Since this is a “proper” fun challenge, I will actually tag three people, who are under no obligation to participate of course, but I think they may:
