Day one of the three day quote challenge

Hello all.  My wonderful WordPress friend Eddie Mae, or Emz, has nominated me for the three day quote challenge.

The challenge has a simple set of rules.  For three consecutive days, the challenge nominee posts one, two or three quotes.  Also, with each of these posts, the nominee nominates three other bloggers.

Hmmm.  I have stopped nominating individual blogs when accepting awards.  The reason being that I would love to nominate all of the blogs I follow for each award that I receive.  I don’t want for anyone to miss out so I am nominating every one of the blogs that I follow.

Please, if I follow you, consider this post a nomination for you to accept the three day challenge.  Let me know if you take up the challenge.

So, my three quotes today:

edmundburke_The_Only_Thing_Necessary_For_Evil_To_Win

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing – Edmund Burke

This quote is so true.  If everyone ignores the wrong doing around them then…well…nothing will ever change.  Things have only changed when bystanders have stood up for what is right.

mas_puede_la_plume_que_la_espada

The pen is mightier than the sword – Edward Bulwer-Lytton

When I wrote for the Amnesty International Write For Rights campaign last year, I wrote a slogan on a piece of paper which gave me the incentive to keep writing.  I wrote “Más puede la pluma que la espada” which is Spanish for the pen is mightier than the sword.

I looked up this quote online earlier today as I was curious where this idiom came from.  I found the above concerning its origins and took a screengrab with Shutter.

I will be posting three quotes for each of these three days, the third of which will be a quote that has made me laugh when I first heard it.

The third quote today is one that has made me laugh several times – in fact, nearly every time that I imagine the situation.

Actress Tallulah Bankhead was quite a headstrong character and said the following when meeting up with a previous lover at a party.  Can you imagine the gentleman’s reaction when she said this to him having not seen her since she had left him without warning a few years previously?

Yes, she said, “I thought I told you to wait in the car”.
