3 Days, 3 Quotes: Day 2 – Seriously, Just Because Someone Is Evil Doesn’t Mean They Are Behind Everything Wrong With The World

Again a big thank-you to Moyatorium for tagging me. And a reminder that I’m going to keep these posts pretty short and I’m also going to break the consecutive day rule. I have however, decided to choose quotes from the Autumn 2017 anime season for my 3 days.

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day, can be a super short post).
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day.

Quote:

King12a

As the post title says, just because someone is evil doesn’t mean they are responsible for everything that goes wrong. I felt this was appropriate in the show because Natsuko was certainly evil in King’s Game (or at least a survivalist right until the end which kind of over-rode any sense of human compassion she may have had) but she didn’t cause everything that went wrong for the characters. They managed quite a few disasters all on their own. And you have to admit, there are always people in your life that you will suspect when something goes wrong, but they may not always be the cause.

Nominations (obligation free):


Thanks for reading.

3 Days, 3 Quotes: Day 1 – Sometimes A Little Is A Lot

I want to thank Moyatorium for tagging me on this because I really do enjoy quotes. That said, I’m going to keep these posts pretty short and I’m also going to break the consecutive day rule. I have however, decided to choose quotes from the Autumn 2017 anime season for my 3 days.

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day, can be a super short post).
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day.

Quote:

Lustrous6d

I had to include this quote from Land of the Lustrous because it just struck such a chord with me how often people resolve to change, try a little and get discouraged. Phos perfectly demonstrates this sense of failure even as they try to figure out what to do next.

Tweets on March Comes in Like A Lion

No real surprise that I’ve become a little bit obsessed with March Comes in Like a Lion season 2 and so I’ve been having a great deal of fun reading people’s tweets and blog posts about it. While I share a lot of the blog posts I come across through my In Case You Missed It posts I decided this week to share some Tweets I’ve come across for this anime.

Anyway, March Comes in Like a Lion has been pretty amazing and I’ve been gushing for the last few episodes. It is nice to find so many like minded people on Twitter trying to find ways to express just how fantastic this show has been.

Note – This probably isn’t going to be a regular thing, but at the moment I’m still figuring out what to fill the Evil or Live gap in my schedule with so I thought I’d try a few different things and decide what works.

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 2

Okay, day 2 of this challenge and today I am sharing some movie quotes. If you missed day 1 and some of my favourite book quotes you should hop on over and have a look and feel free to tell me your favourite quote from a book.

The rules for this challenge were to display 3 quotes a day for 3 days on your blog and to nominate 3 bloggers per day. I’m kind of not nominating anyone but if you feel you want to take up the challenge, let me know because I’d love to see your quotes.

3 of my favourite movie quotes:

Quote - Movie1.jpg

(V for Vendetta)

Quote - Movie2.gif

(Fifth Element)

Quote - Movie3.gif

(The Princess Bride)

That’s it for today’s quotes but I’ll finish the challenge tomorrow with 3 of my favourite anime quotes.

 

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 1

Okay, I was nominated for this by Rose on A World of Many Adventures quite a while ago so I’m finally doing a response. Thanks for the nomination, I’ve had a lot of fun thinking about what quotes to share.

The rules:

  • Display 3 quotes a day on your blog for 3 days
  • Nominate 3 bloggers per day

Seems simple enough. Given it’s 3 quotes for 3 days I’ve decided to split it into a day for book quotes, a day for movie quotes, and a day for anime quotes.Without further introduction here are three of my favourite quotes from books.

quote-book1

quote-book2

(Terry Pratchett)

quote-book3

I’d like to do the nomination thing but I know a lot of people kind of feel obligated to respond or pressured (or just indifferent) to these so really I’ll just open it upto anyone who would like to share. Sorry for breaking the chain.

 

Words of Wisdom

Another week and another round of anime wisdom for the ages. No theme this week, just some random quotes that I felt were worth noting.

Lelouche.jpg

Firstly from Zero/Lelouch. Essentially don’t dish it out if you aren’t willing to take it.

Eru

Eru from Hyouka, who is such a bundle of positivity most of the time, actually pointing out the obvious. Emotions are a continuum and you don’t get the highs without the lows.

decim

Lastly this week, Decim from Death Parade. I like this quote because it echoes one of my favourite quotes from The Princes Bride. “Life’s not fair, anyone who says otherwise is selling something.” Life is honestly much easier to take once you stop expecting it to be fair. You don’t get disappointed half so often.

Well, that’s it for this week. More quotes coming next week.
