The third of three quotes

Many thanks to Sabah Batul, for nominating me for the Three Day Three Quotes challenge which requires me to post a quote on three consecutive days and nominate three other blogs to participate in the challenge. I see a lot of quotes these days on Social Media so it is hard to find something that is memorable.

For a sensible approach to life, for practical advice, and for sheer common sense and keen insight, I think that G K Chesterton stands out from the rest and for that reason I have chosen three quotes today.

It isn’t that they can’t see the solution. It is that they can’t see the problem.

If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.

To be clever enough to get all that money, one must be stupid enough to want it.

 

Here are my three nominations:

Follow the tumble Lees

Silver Threading

Retirement Transition

  1. I agree with the three quotes. The second one drew my attention to the “worth doing badly” and that made me look at it several times, and even think about it. I figured out that if it is worth doing badly, it’s also worth doing well. In that case, one must consider every option before one can handle anything worth doing.
