I have been invited to participate in the “3 Quotations in 3 Days Challenge” by Zanthee https://tasmatron.wordpress.com , who writes an excellent blog. Please take the time to check out her blog, and thank you so much for the nomination, Zanthee!
1.) Once a day for the next three days, choose a quotation, and write a little about it.
2.) Thank the person who nominated you, and link back to their site.
3.) Nominate 3 other bloggers for the challenge, and let them know about it.
“Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream things that never were and ask why not?” George Bernard Shaw
I have used this quotation previously on my blog, but I value its meaning so highly that I will begin with this one. Shaw said it first, and then Bobby Kennedy used it in his 1968 run for the Presidency of the United States of America.
This quotation shows idealism and the understanding that the world need not be as it is and that not only is it possible to imagine other ways, often better approaches to problems, but also that such idealism represents the morally correct approach to life. As a society, we need to imagine a better future and then try to find ways to implement a more positive society. We need optimism, courage, hope, and strength to face the challenges of our world.
