If You Are a Quote Lover

So I interrupt this vacation in Cape Cod to take part in the latest BloggyVille tag game, If You Are a Quote Lover.

Soumichatterjeenath of anunwrappedsoul nominated me yesterday. She and I are new followers of each other, and she’s always very polite in her comments. I wouldn’t dare not accept her challenge. Thank you, Soumi. Go on over and check out her place if you haven’t visited.

Here are the rules.

Post your 3 favorite quotes, one each for three consecutive days.

With each post nominate three bloggers for the challenge.

Recognize the blogger who nominated you.

My dear wife Karen just awoke and we’ve got plans to take Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle to Dickerson State Park and its dog-friendly lake today and I’m nearing the end of my self-imposed morning blogging window today, so here’ goes.

I’m feeling rebellious in this one. I’m going to pick verse from favorite songs.

On day one I’m starting with a favorite line from Thunder Road, the 1975 classic from my No. 1 artist, Bruce Springsteen.

For those of you who’ve heard it, you’re allowed to sing along:

The screen door slams, Mary’s dress sways
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey, that’s me and I want you only
Don’t turn me home again, I just can’t face myself alone again
Don’t run back inside, darling, you know just what I’m here for
So you’re scared and you’re thinking that maybe we ain’t that young anymore
Show a little faith, there’s magic in the night
You ain’t a beauty but, hey, you’re alright
Oh, and that’s alright with me

And now, a YouTube taste of the song from Springsteen’s album Born to Run.

Here’s the link to the photo above the quoted lyrics.

Now my three nominations:

A voracious reader, quote lover and my friend (unless two tags in a couple of weeks is too many), https://myblogismyboyfriend.wordpress.com

The Big Apple Blogger who appreciated my summer reading tips, http://fascinatorium.com

An interesting writer and photographer from my hometown of Syracuse, https://francisdiclemente.wordpress.com.

Have a great day. I’ll be back tomorrow with part two of this challenge.

  2. Love it! I’ll work up a post for tomorrow…tonight I’m thinking baseball and my pajamas and a Royals sweep, no blogging! I think the 10 hour sleep last night spoiled me a bit!


  3. Hope you and your dear wife are having fun on your get away. Loved your first quote. Makes me think of one of my favorite quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Always do what you are afraid to do.” ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. The Boss leaves me cold – different tastes and each to their own, I say. That said, I shall reblog so my friend Stefan gets to read this as he will appreciate it – big Springsteen fan – and it might encourage Stefan to take up the keyboard and blog.


  5. Hey Mark, you can never go wrong with the Boss! Thanks for the nomination. Here’s my contribution to famous quotes, although it would be more applicable in February in Syracuse: โ€œIn the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.” Albert Camus
