Anticipated because you guys can’t wait to see what my third and final quote will be, or anticipated because finally I’ll stop being in your feed on a daily basis? Dunno! You decide.
I am actually doing this! I am actually posting three times in three days, following the tag instructions, actually doing a tag, making cute(ish) graphics – the whole nine! It’s almost like I’m a real blogger or something.
Unnecessarily long intro: Check. Now, real post time.
- Thank the person who nominated you (thank ya kindly Angelica @ The Book Cover Girl and Rhea @ Bookchanted)
- Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
- Nominate three new bloggers each day
Quote No. 3
“Trippers and askers surround me,
People I meet, the effect upon me of my early life or the ward and city I live in, or the nation,
The latest dates, discoveries, inventions, societies, authors old and new,
My dinner, dress, associates, looks, compliments, dues,
The real or fancied indifference of some man or woman I love,
The sickness of one of my folks or of myself, or ill-doing or loss or lack of money, or depressions or exaltations,
Battles, the horrors of fratricidal war, the fever of doubtful news, the fitful events:
These come to me days and nights and go from me again,
But they are not the Me myself.” -Walt Whitman

I really loved doing this tag!! Thank you again, Angelica and Rhea.
Now for the last of the tags, and again, do not feel at all obligated to do this very specific and time-consuming tag:
