Three Day Quote Challenge | Day Three

Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
― Oscar Wilde

The Challenge

Hello, friends! Welcome to the final day of my ‘Three Day Quote Challenge’ posts. For my final quote, I chose one that sums of the very essence of my soul. This quote comes from the utterly fascinating, Mr. Oscar Wilde, who said a plethora of memorable, relatable things in his time on this earth, but this one in particular speaks to me. There is also a similar saying that I try to live by, which is, “Kill them with kindness.” Pretty self-explanatory, I feel. I spend a lot of my time online, and have for the majority of my teenage and adult life, and because of this, I’ve had my fair share of encounters with unsavory characters. I’ve always had a pretty level head, and I’ve learned not to feed the trolls, because it just isn’t worth it, and to be the bigger person. People can only bring you down, and get under your skin, if you allow them.

But, for some weird reason, these type of people also interpret kindness and genuine sincerity as attacks, and boy, it riles them up something fierce. So, whenever you have to deal with someone whose sole intent is to bring you down, or piss you off, follow the wise words of Oscar Wilde, and forgive them. Move on. Walk away. And eventually, after stroking their bruised egos for a little while, they will as well.

One last time, here is a recap of the rules of this challenge::

  1. Post in three consecutive days.
  2. You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3. Challenge three different bloggers per day.

Here are my final, three nominations for the ‘Three Day Quote Challenge’, and I sincerely hope that you all choose to take part:

  1. Amy
  2. John Jr.
  3. Supergirl

I want to thank Christina one last time for nominating me for this challenge; you guys should definitely check her out. I had a lot of fun doing this challenge, and I hope that all of the wonderful individuals that I have chosen have fun with it as well.

Thanks for reading, friends.

  1. Thank you for the pingback and for the nomination Jan. 🙂

    Unfortunately I must politely decline to formally participate, but I do thank you for the nomination 😉 ; but I will at least share a somewhat random quote that I picked from Wikiquote.org:

    “Give me the judgment of balanced minds in preference to laws every time. Codes and manuals create patterned behavior. All patterned behavior tends to go unquestioned, gathering destructive momentum.
    -Darwi Odrade | Chapterhouse: Dune | Frank Herbert”
