MM – My Quote Challenge

Last week, I did a post featuring visual quotes from three of my favorite authors (my pictures, their words). Two of my readers kindly left their favorite quotes, and a light bulb went off over my head. I asked myself, “Hey, how about doing a Quote Challenge as the thing for National Photography Month?” I didn’t answer myself, because I was already busy searching through the pictures I’ve taken in the past couple weeks for ones that might work with the words.

So, this is my challenge for myself, and I need your help. Please leave me one of your favorite quotes, and I’ll pair it with a picture I’ve taken. The catch (for me) is that it will have to be something I’ve snapped during this month (May 2016). Since I only had two to start, I decided to add one more of my own, inspired by a picture I captured yesterday.

Here’s this week’s offerings –

  1. “and the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was greater than the risk it took to blossom” Anais Nin.

  2. The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
    Don’t go back to sleep!
    You must ask for what you really want.
    Don’t go back to sleep!
    People are going back and forth
    across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
    The door is round and open
    Don’t go back to sleep!

  3. Oh, beautiful! I love the images you picked. And the smiling bird. I’m not going to lie, the images made the quotes more powerful and I found myself a little teary. I love this challenge…good quotes make me so happy.

  4. Absolutely loved your pictures and those quotes. I skipped MM this Monday so stopping by a bit late.
    Here is a quote that I love. These are Ayn Rand’s words.
    The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me

  5. Lovely thoughts and pictures to go with them, Traci. Here is one I love:
    “If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.” ― Coco Chanel

  6. “So many things are possible just as long as you don’t know they’re impossible.” — Norton Juster (from the Phantom Tollbooth)

    Love this idea!

  7. Am I too late for this? I love Gertrude Stein’s “The answer is there is no answer. That is the answer.” Though I think I might have paraphrased that.
