Post 20150922 (3 Days, 3 Quotes–Quote #1)

So I’ve been tagged. Don’t worry, no spray paint got in my eyes. Instead, it’s a challenge to present one of your favorite quotes and tag three other bloggers with the same challenge.

In a nutshell, here are the rules:

1. Thank the blogger, who nominated you.

2. Share one new quote on three consecutive days on your blog. They can be from anywhere, anyone, or anything that inspires you… Which means, it can be from yourself, too!

3. On each of the three days, nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this mission impossible endeavor (if they dare!)


Okay. I hate rules, but I will follow them to a certain extent

First off, thank you, Elusive Trope for picking me. I enjoy your poems and am glad that you enjoy mine. Everyone, please go and look at his site. You can come back here later.

Second, the quote. I have a quote in my sig file. I see it every time I send an email and I send a lot of email, but I don’t always think too much about it. here it is so we can all think about it.

All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
–Edgar Allan Poe

It seems almost trite, but in two lines he sums up what may be the biggest tenet of Buddhist philosophy. All of the boundaries between us are illusions of our making. We are all one, all in this together. Also, it has the cool Inception/Matrix vibe going for or over a hundred years ago.

Third, I’m only nominating three bloggers in total, and they are:

Hopefully they all check their pingbacks!
