The Quote Challenge – Day 2

Tina, my blog friend who writes over at The Sunny Side of Life has tagged me to do the 3 day Quote Challenge. The challenge is simple. I’ve to share a favorite quote from either a favorite book or a favorite author in a post for 3 consecutive days in a blog post, and tag bloggers to do the same. I’m quite happy to tag Simran from My Friendship, The Ilirian Wanderer and her Ravings AND Jaibala from My School of Thought to share their favorite quotes as well.

Fav. Author – Enid Blyton

Quote Challenge – Day 2

I discovered Harry Potter at the turn of the new millenium. The love for books and reading had been there even before that. The author whose books I enjoyed the most then was Enid Blyton. To this day, I remember finding a book of the Secret Seven series in the attic of my cousin and reading it that very night. That led to searching for more Secret Seven books at the school library, and I ended up finding other series like The Naughtiest Girl, Famous Five, Five Find Outers, The Adventure series etc. Enid Blyton brought the fun into reading that continued into other genres and other authors that I’m fond of. I have not read Mr. Galliano’s Circus, but the quote is one that means much to me. There have been obstacles in life, and I’ve jumped past that to happier things. It was an obstacle in life that brought me into blogging, and looking at that, that obstacle has been a stepping stone to new friends, some of whom have become best friends too. The quote brings me hope, and that’s why I treasure it and believe in it.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
