3 Days, 3 Quotes (Day 1)

My friend Amy (The World Is A Book…) invited me to participate the “3 Days, 3 Quotes” challenge — post a quote each day for 3 days and nominate 3 new bloggers each day to take part. (Thanks, Amy.)

Amy, an excellent photographer, is a wise, kind, and caring person. (I, actually, can go on and on because she is truly amazing!) I admire her a lot. For those who know her, I am sure you know what I am talking about. For those who don’t know her, you’ll find out what I mean if you visit her blog.

I love quotes. When I read a good one, I would smile for hours. Unfortunately even though I like quotes a lot, I cannot memorize any. So I googled and found this one.
Promises are like crying babies in a theater, they should
be carried out at once.

— Vincent Peale

Vincent Peale was right. The longer I’ve waited, the more I feel like to chicken out of this challenge even though I have promised Amy 😉

And for this cute crying baby… I really don’t mind to be the one who has to skip the show and carry him out of the theater.

I would like to nominate: Cee, Chris (Sorry, Cee 😉 and Mabel. No pressure, of course.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

    You are the 3rd or 4th person to ask if I would play along. I just might have to step in and play. Vincent Peale is always a good person to quote.
